Cleanup continues after windstorm swept through Sheridan

More than a week after a powerful wind storm swept through Sheridan, the cleanup continues.

Violent winds ripped through the town on May 28, uprooting and knocking over two trees and breaking another in half.
The Kendrick Mansion, located at the Trail End Historic Site, lost two really old trees. They were planted in 1914 as a windbreak from the Northern Winds but they failed because the wind came from the opposite direction.

 Bare patches are all that remain since the debris in the area has already been cleaned up.

Trail End Superintendent Cynde Georgen said a plan is in the works to replant and rejuvenate the damaged property.

 “We managed to get the stump removed last week, and what we’d like to do is get the hill re-contoured to where it needs to be, and then eventually plant substitute Blue Spruce trees,” Georgen said.

 No damage was done to the mansion, and the cost of the damage is still being assessed.
