Well, with 7,000 trees, many of which hang over monuments and tombs, it could have been a lot worse.
Here are a few photographs, taken by Assistant Superintendent Danny Rodgriguez yesterday and today, of fallen trees. Danny reports that there also was some damage to monuments.
UPDATE: Here’s one more, taken by Vice President for Operations Ken Taylor. This tree fell over on Sunday night.
UPDATE: The clean-up continues. One of the leaders on the chestnut tree behind the Anderson Tomb on Battle Avenue came down, just missing a marble monument. Here the tree is being sawn in pieces and removed.

thanks for sharing the pics of my beloved greenwood.
i’m thankful the damage wasn’t worse.
wish i was there to see for myself, but i’ll have all of eternity…
Yikes, so sad. Any estimate on how many trees were lost? I hear about 150 at Prospect Park, hope it wasn’t that bad at Green-Wood.
