Tree survivors


On Friday 19th November 2004 a massive windstorm swept through the area of High Tatras National Park, Slovakia. It has been reported that the natural phenomenon lasting only between 3 to 8 minutes has reached 165km/h in some places and managed to destroy as much as 13 000 hectares of the forest.

Many say that it will take many decades to repair and restore damaged forest to its original state.
