This fallen tree shown on the north side of Idaho Avenue at Fifth Street in Holton is seen uprooted after last Friday’s ice storm that hit the county. In the aftermath of the storm, the Jackson County landfill is accepting tree limbs and branches for free from all county residents through Feb. 15, and the city of Holton’s brush burn site is open daily until the end of January.
