In an email last month, the city of Sandy Springs announced it has temporarily closed John Ripley Forbes Big Trees Forest Preserve.

“Due to the recent storms, we have many large trees down in the Big Trees Preserve which are blocking trails and making walking in the forest difficult,” city spokeswoman Sharon Kraun said in an email. “The Big Trees board has recommended that the preserve be closed until the trees can be removed. We will let all know once we have an estimated time of completion from the tree service.”

The preserve is located at 7645 Roswell Road.
