The results showed that: 11647 street trees of 22 species in 11 families were surveyed, 6762 (accounting for 58.06%) street trees were damaged. Among the damaged trees, there were 3351 (accounting for 28.77%) lodging and 3411 (accounting for 29.29% ) trees had broken branches and leaves; the amage was serious and caused by objective and subjective reasons.
