College Ecology 202, Windsnap

In heavy winds, trees can experience Windsnap. Removing the dead limbs probably opened
up the tree to more sway under heavy winds this morning. One of the
longer trunks snapped!

Woke me up :(

I wonder if my college ecology intructor, Jill Yeager, would be surprised that I remembered this? (And yes this is the same Yeager who was on 3-2-1 Contact.)

The limb is about 60 feet in length. It now covers half the yard and
is blocking the alley.

Oh well!

This is going to let in more light to one of the side yards. I am now
wondering if the upper canopy with grow over the spot where this
branch was. That would be nice, since it provides so much shade to
the house.
