Hurricane Irene

Hurricane Irene was one weeks ago and we were lucky. We lost five large trees but were lucky they all fell away from the house. The root ball in this first picture is 10 feet tall, the tree was 100 feet tall. In the second picture is another 100 foot tall tree that had a very strong root structure. Instead this tree broke off 30 feet up winding up next to the tall stump which I assume will die in the near future. Our only losses were two goldfish who died from a lack of oxygen in the pond when the pumps stopped due to no power. Luckily power was only out for 24 hours or it could have been much worse.
