The forest is all gone

The few trees that remain after Hurricane Sandy are mostly spindly oaks in this planted norwegian pine forest. All the pines are down, hundreds of them. They are all arranged in the same direction, and took the powerlines out with them. It is like when a wheat field gets beaten down by a summer rain, except we are talking about 60 cm thick trunks that are maybe 25 m tall (at least) here. Incredible...
