FIU: Downed trees not necessarily a lost cause

Among the devastation wrought by Hurricane Irma last week, many downed trees and uprooted plants were left in the storm’s wake. Those in a rush to get things back to normal have been quick to break out the chainsaws and remove the fallen debris in the days following the storm. But not all fallen trees and plants are lost causes, according to Christopher Baraloto, director of the International Center for Tropical Botany at The Kampong, a partnership between FIU and the National Tropical Botanical Garden.
