Trees lost in BK tornado set to be replaced

Dozens of trees that were uprooted in a Bushwick park during the September tornado that tore through Brooklyn will be replaced this week.

The Department of Parks and Recreation and the New York Restoration Project are planting 74 new trees in Maria Hernandez Park.

More than 50 trees were lost as a result of the tornado.

Organizers say that the entire replanting project cost about $250,000 and more than $460,000 to support tree-planting efforts citywide.
