WASHINGTON -- While D.C. was spared from devastating damage like that experienced by New York and New Jersey, there are signs of destruction throughout the area. Two days after the major gusts of Sandy swept through, broken, fallen and damaged trees can still be seen in most neighborhoods.

Casey Trees, a D.C.-based nonprofit, recommends reporting damaged or fallen trees by calling 311, submitting requests online or using iPhone or Android applications.

Casey Trees also recommends contacting a certified arborist to assess damage, structural stability, infection and pruning needs.
