Another tree falls and knocks out power, pretty ho-hum. During our extended rainy season, these outages happen so frequently that we don’t even report them all.
Yet we hadn’t considered their messy wake, until walking by one of the major falls today. You can see the scene is still in bad shape, in this image below.
The tree detritus poses no threats to power lines, roads or anything else. However the evidence is everywhere, weeks later. We’re not singling out this homeowner because you can discover the same trunks, stumps and/or destroyed properties scattered in the hills.
Now look up from the ground, and you can see more trees that are ready to keel over. We can envision the next storm and tree fall here, so maybe it’s worth waiting for the “timber…” before doing anything much!
