One of a few in the neighborhood - bit oak just blown over. About a 12' rootball. Branches tore off most of the front gutters/fascia on the house behind it.
Roof was obviously aging out as well. Lets hope they have insurance. The days of total roof replacement are long gone, most will pro rate roof replacement after damage like that. Water and structural damage is another thing, though.We talked about that every time we walked by it in the neighborhood Richard. It had been heavily pruned and had been near death for a long, long time. I'd say it died of old age - while windy. I hope no one was hurt. I'll bet the homeowners are kicking themselves now. But it is amazing what some people will do to avoid 'cutting down a tree'. I know this -- if they don't get another tarp added that extends up over the ridge of the roof, they'll have problems with the next rain. Although - they likely already have had significant water damage during the storm.
FYI, as far as TN goes (and likely other states) you are responsible for what's on your side of the fence, and she's responsible for her side. Tree falling is considered an act of God. Even if their tree falls on your house, it's still on you. Of course, if said neighbor has been told of a dangerous tree and such I suppose a person could sue them or something like that.Thank goodness no one is hurt.
My neighbors trees fall on my fence. This last time I fixed the fence and cut up the wood. Gave my neighbor the bill for fence materials and she freaked. Told me whoever I got to fix the fence, charged way too much and she wasn't going to pay it.
I get a veterans 10% discount on materials and didn't want money for my time. Thats how much 'they' charged.
She picks next time.
I don't have any nice 429/460 pics, but I have 4V Cleveland head pics. The intake ports are similar to big block ports. Ah, I can't find the old basic pictures. This is a stock 4V on the left, a filled one middle, and the small AFR Cleveland heads on the right.Pics of that head please....I wanna fuel up my port-size-envy....
