And that's why they call it yellowwood

It's a beautiful thing, though the circumstances for seeing it are sad. Brooklyn Botanic was mostly spared from last week's tornado, but at least one Yellowwood (Cladastris kentukea) on the Overlook was so badly damaged that it had to come down. The arborists have been hard at work both at BBG and nearby off the grounds helping the City Parks Department in dealing with the aftermath of last week's storm.
