I don't have any pictures but a few years ago there must have been an impressive microburst on Little long pond in St Regis area (one between Bear and Green) The south east corner of the pond had a pile of large white pines knocked over. Right where the campsite is where you can walk into from the landing.

There was a tremendous mult-day ice storm in 1998 that affected much of northern NY and adjacent Ontario and Quebec. Incredible damage, particularly to brittle white birch trees and many others. The big microburst that did so much damage throughout, especially in the NW corner of the Adirondacks, was on Friday night, July 15 1995 - I remember it well. Smaller destructive wind bursts happen from time to time.

Two oaks that went their separate ways and landed directly on a ski trail. In addition, they took down another oak, a sugar maple and a beech. The reroute of the trail is more fun than what's under all that wood.

This one was fresh when I passed through on May 5, 2018. Same storm that took the life of Lynn Malerba.
Here's how it looked a couple days ago...
