"If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound ?" Well only if your Papa and I in bed at 10:30 pm with the windows open it does .
WOW! last night we both heard a SNAP CRACKLE POP FIZZLE BANG BANG !!!!!! and it was loud so loud I though some one was letting of a firework . I took a moment to hear the sound in my head again and recognized it as a tree falling then got up looked out the back hall window towards the yard and sure enough our south side of our 150 + year old tree had come crashing down . Now there was no wind and no lightning , but id does look like rot got to it and that's why it came crashing down . I cant believe it after all those decades and she falls apart . We were both very glad it wasn't the side that is over the house but now we have to get a closer look to see if this side is in good shape or not and if not we may have to cut her down and that we both done want to do as we both felt sad that this happened oh not sad for us but sad for this beautiful old tree as we love it’s beauty and shade it provides in the summers as well as perches for birds who visit our yard , Thankfully there were no nests in that part of the tree this year .
Must be at least 100foot of tree down on our side and about the same on the cedar hedges and in the field beside us .
I didn't want to get to close to take photos just incase , one never knows if it has finished falling as it is hanging and leaning there for now ! Papa and I have a big clean up of this to do now .
This is part of the tree on and in the cedar hedges and over in the field .
The big empty spot here on the left is where this huge branch was all full and huge it covered the entire area when it was there but now nothing empty and bare .
So now onto the clean up and hope the rest of this beautiful old 150+ tree is healthy ! I would hate to loose it !
Until next time .
