The millions of trees killed or damaged in the eastern Plains country by the 1940 Armistice Day storm represent a tremendous economic loss to this section of the country. Hardest hit were the orchardists who, in many cases, lost bearing orchards representing their entire capital. Commercial nurserymen sustained heavy losses to their stocks of certain species of fruit and forest trees and ornamental shrubs, as did farmers who had similar species in their farm plantings. Ornamental, park, and street plantings of Siberian elm and to a lesser extent several other exotics were badly riddled, involving a considerable replacement expense, to say nothing of the loss of public and private investment in the trees destroyed.
