The article discusses a study which tested whether there were attributes of trees that may have influenced whether a tree fell or was left standing due to Hurricane Igor. The hurricane was a Category I when it passed the island of Newfoundland on September 21, 2010. The cities of St. John's and Mount Pearl and the town of Paradise were included in the study. Trees were arranged into native/non-native classes.
