LimogesA pair of wild thunderstorms have knocked over trees in and around Village Limoges and Larose Forest. The two storms were Friday August 4 and Saturday August 12.

Environment Canada called for the severe weather in and around the Ottawa area, including “dangerous thunderstorms.” The storms were at times fun to watch from indoors, but very wet for those observing the storms from outdoors. The storm on Aug. 4 produced high wind gusts that knocked over trees and fences in Village Limoges as well as trees in the mighty Larose Forest.

Wild storms knock over trees every year in Larose Forest. Regardless if people do or do not hear it, trees do indeed make a sound when they fall in a forest.

In our region, Larose Forest is a 27,000-acre forest that was re-initiated in 1928 by Mr. Ferdinand Larose. It is noted as the second-largest planted forest in southern Ontario. The forest is managed by the United Counties of Prescott and Russell.
