Tree Damage

The stormy weather has been very hard on our trees lately. It was just a couple of days ago that we had a tree fall on our strawberry patch. That same tree was then pushed off the strawberries last night by the wind from another storm. Very scary to think that the wind can push a tree that has already fallen.

Then today when we were out working around the farm we noticed that another tree had fallen, right onto an auger that we are preparing to have removed from our farm. Rather than sitting at an angle with one end on the ground, the auger was parallel to the ground.

We had to move the auger out of the way to let the tree finish falling as to not have it be a danger to the kids when we are outside. We were very lucky in that it could have fallen right onto our chicken coop creating a lot of work for us in repairs, but instead fell just to the front of it, only pushing a little on it.


  1. It must have been some storm. P.S I am having my first blog give away stop by and leave a comment if you can.

  2. Wow! Crazy pictures! We live in a super hilly, super wooded area and I am always worried about tree damage. One time a branch flew into the house and left a small home but luckily it missed the windows.
