Last night at 1:30 AM my wife and I awoke to what sounded like a series of gunshots in the back yard followed by large thud which shook the house. The sound is almost indescribable. We thought a tree had fallen into our house but no, it decided to take out a portion of the neighbors instead, along with their friends car. Funny thing was, it was a calm, storm-free night. I guess it just got one leaf too many. It was a huge Red Oak tree with a large split in the fork which I’ve been monitoring for the last year. By the way, it was not on my property or my neighbors but just over the line. On the way down it took out a nice size cherry tree and elm tree. It snapped the 12” Diameter cherry tree 12 feet up. I think I’m going to make some commemorative bowls for the unlucky home/car owners. It was awwweeesome. Sorry about your car man.
