Clearing downed trees to open roads and trails

After the storm, downed trees and limbs blocked roads and trails at national wildlife refuges up and down the coast. As part of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's response, a team of sawyers traveled to Long Island this week. These trained chainsaw handlers are on the ground removing trees and other debris that pose a hazard to public safety.
