One tree was knocked down in Copley Square during Hurricane Sandy. The tree lay on its side Tuesday morning.


The Back Bay and its parks were up and running Tuesday morning after Hurricane Sandy shuttered much of the city, and knocked out power and downed trees across the state Monday.

Dog walkers, joggers, and other strollers walked along the Commonwealth Avenue Mall where wet leaves carpeted the pathway, and mostly small branches and the occasional large limb were scattered on the ground.

It was a similar scene in the Public Garden where residents and tourists walked and snapped photos.

One tree in Copley Square did fall during the storm that brought high winds to the region.

The tree, near the corner of Dartmouth Street and St. James Avenue, was still on its side late Tuesday morning, but that did not discourage about half a dozen vendors from setting up shop for the usual farmers market held in the square every Tuesday and Friday.

Overall, the Back Bay reported 16 tree emergencies Monday and Tuesday, according to figures provided by the city.

Nearby, 11 tree emergencies were reported in Beacon Hill and 41 in the South End.
