Omaha, Nebraska (KMTV) —Thousands of trees in the Omaha Metro area fell after a strong wind blew last weekend.
Many people, especially the elderly, have a hard time finding a way to get rid of the big trees in the garden.
The city has partnered with a national non-profit organization to provide assistance to homeowners who are unable to cut garden debris and carry it to the curb.
The program is aimed at vulnerable homeowners, such as the disabled and the elderly, who have large trees lying down in their yard and need to cut them into smaller pieces for transportation.
The city will announce the name of the nonprofit organization and all other details sometime on Friday.
Public works director Bob Stub said nonprofits are already in the area and are preparing to start helping these residents.
He said he would do his best to reduce what they could do, but would still be limited.
“They come with personnel and a chainsaw. For example, they don’t have the equipment to process a tree 24 inches in diameter and carry it to the curb. In the same situation, this is very laborious, so I said the other day. So, it is expected that there will be situations where you need to put the material on the curb. If you can’t carry it, we can’t carry it either. Nonprofits are in the same situation, “Stubbe said. I will.
