The Trees and Shrubs

The Trees and Shrubs are trying to make a comeback, but most will die off due to the storm surge.
Water always follows salt, so when the surge (Gulf Saltwater) swallowed the Island, most plants could not handle it. I have seen some species
starting to sprout new leaves again, but sadly most will die.

I took all these picture today, Christmas 2008. So you can still the aftermath 3 months later.
Remember that so many are still displaced from the hurricane on Christmas Day.

This Sega Palm has started to sprout new leaves

Uprooted, as were many of them throughout the area

Fits the Sega Palm (see the new sprouts) as well as the house and owners

Dead shrubs in the middle of all the ones that survived

Houses used to be here with the trees

Some made it - some did not
