Methuen Public Works Director Ray DiFiore said most of the downed trees in the city have been cut up and removed from area roadways. The two private tree-cutting crews working for the city will be released tomorrow, he said.

"We're in good shape," he said, adding that homeowners can bring tree branches and yard debris to the landfill until 5 p.m. every day this week, including Saturday.

North Andover Public Works director Bruce Thibodeau said town crews have removed all the hazardous trees from roadways and National Grid has cleaned up all the downed wires.

"Now, we're just doing things left alongside of the road," he said. "There were a couple of trees we had to take down that were uprooted."

He said Verizon is still working in a couple of places in town where wires were taken down.
