  The storm that hit Reno earlier this week caused a torrent of tree limbs to come down and the city is backlogged trying to remove them. Reno Public Radio's Julia Ritchey reports.

Overall, Monday's weather caused fairly insignificant impact to the city's tree canopy, with no entire trees falling but plenty of lost limbs.

Steve Churchillo is the city's chief arborist. He says contrary to what some may think, the limbs that fell were due to the weight of the snow and not the health of the tree.
