When Trees Attack
Well, this one hasn't...yet. I mentioned back when the news covered the leaning tree last year that I get the willies every time I drive past that thing. I figured it had to fall down sometime. With my luck, it would happen as I'm driving by it.
I wonder which would be worse: Having the tree fall right on top of you, or having it fall in front of you and running into it at 65 miles per hour?
Paranoid am I? Hey, just cause you're paranoid...
Then there's that guy from around Sacramento I reminded Enore about. This happened a few months ago, if memory serves me right;
The guy had gotten done fishing in on the American(?) River and was sitting down for lunch at a picnic table. Without warning, a big branch from the cottonwood tree he was sitting under breaks off, falls on him and kills him. Just like that.
Keep a close eye on the trees around you, even though that may not help much if the tree really wants to attack.
In any case, I'm glad they're taking that leaning redwood tree down.
