I hope damage is not bad. Tree probably was lonely and needed something to lean on.
Storm blew it over. 75 mph wind.
Damn nature you scary!
Jokes aside i hope everyone is ok and damage is not that bad.
SweenJM : good thing is that looks like your internet still works and that's what matters
Anyway, I hope that nothing happened to you, no injuries.
Busted the roof up pretty good, but not bad beyond that. Fixable, to be sure. Just happened, we will see what the insurance adjuster says and go from there.
It's your fault for angering the Gods.
Ouch, that's very unfortunate. Hope repairs will be easy mate. On the bright side, nobody got hurt and you'll have some more sunlight coming in from that side of the building this summer
Aw that sucks, have cut a few trees down around my house "just in case". Not that it helps you in any way...
Good luck with the insurance and repairs! Hopefully all you need is new panels / sheets. Looks like a sheet metal roof?
Well new drainage probably too... but as long as the supports are intact shouldn't be too complicated to repair.
Busted the roof up good (supports included), but everything else is intact. should be pretty straight-forward repair. Insurance is going to cover it.
You're lucky it was a shorter broader tree. Something like the 175' Hemlock I have about 100' from the house, would cut mine clean in half. The only reason it's still standing is that it is NE of the house and all our storm winds are from the SW.
I'm still probably going to take it out in year or two.
Start planning a new build in its place, you got the materials!
Unfortunate! Hope the repairs go well.
Lucky it was so close to the house or you'd be fitting a new door to the living room.
Lol, its a big tree in this part of the world
is the tree ok? did it hurt itself?
No, the tree isn't going to make it. Was a great shade tree too.
Glad no one was hurt.
Now for serious stuff,I printed off several copies of your tree and going outside to shame and bully the 20 or so tress around my house.
I need to replace the roof and shaming and bulling the trees seems like a perfect way to get it done.
Wish me luck.
Thanks for the picture.
Tree Service guys came out today to get the ball rolling on removal. Kinda tricky since power and telcom lines are right behind. Fortunately the tree is stable, but here is hoping we get it removed before the next storm
Lol, it's worth a shot.
