Cottonwood trees are cut down by Black Hills Power on Tuesday, March 18, 2014 in Spearfish City Park in Spearfish, S.D. The trees were cut down after being damaged in the past storm and threatened powerlines. The two-day blizzard that hit Oct. 4 dumped as much as 4 feet of snow in the Black Hills, downing or damaging thousands of trees. The Belle Fourche City Council this week approved bids totaling $100,000 to complete tree branch cleanup around town and in a cemetery, the Black Hills Pioneer reported. The city is eligible for federal reimbursement of up to 75 percent of the cost if the cleanup is completed by May 7. (AP Photo/Black Hills Pioneer, Mark Watson )
