This is an IRRESPONSIBLE homeowner’s ignored loaded gun just waiting to kill someone.
Not funny that it’s at my house. I’ve been looking at it for years. Today when I got home I let the dog out and she was running around under it as it blew back and forth like the masts on the “Caine mutiny” in the scene with the terrible storm as the ship was lashed by horrible winds and waves.
Im gonna slice it up this week- more work. It just never stops.
Look around your yard. See trees with a tilt? Bad crotches? Pulpy trunk? Cavities?? Holes where branches used to be?
If you said “yes” to any of those questions, call a tree guy for removal. To ignore dangerous trees is akin to leaving a loaded and cocked revolver on the floor for a child to play with. WHY would you do that??? Right, you wouldn’t.
So if you have dangerous trees on your property, why is it that that’s the case?
The Boston Globe reported a few years ago that between 700-1,000 people in the US are killed every year by trees- a pathetic situation that we all should reject.
I see articles in the nation’s papers showing pictures of trees that crushed people with the text stating “nobody knows” why the tree fell. BULLSHIT. I can usually see from the pictures exactly why the tree fell and killed an 11 year old neighbor, or a family watching fireworks in the town green (both true examples).
The nation’s liability laws call these deaths “acts of god” to which I scoff. These deaths are not acts of god, they are crimes of negligence, and the laws need to be changed to reflect this reality.
