In this Thursday, March 8, 2012 photo, Connecticut Department of Transportation tree maintenance crews work with a contractor using a specialized piece of excavating equipment, nicknamed the brontosaurus, which can grind and pulverize a tree, top to bottom, in a minute or less, along Route 2 in Colchester, Conn. The DOT and the state’s largest electric utility, Connecticut Light and Power, are both aggressively taking a chainsaw to many of the state’s trees, the main culprits in last year’s storms that left roads blocked and thousands without power for days.
