Our Tree Broke Just As I was Getting Ready To Go Lift

I was just getting ready to head out to the garage when I heard a series of cracks. I looked out the window and at first, I didn’t notice it, but a large branch from our tree had split and fell. That kind of shot my nerves a bit as I had just been out there in just about that exact spot watering the milkweed and hibiscus that are on the patio.

As a result, I wound up never doing my strength or anything else in the garage. For one thing, I didn’t know how stable it is or what direction it might flip if it breaks off completely. It’s a large branch that could certainly reach the garage. It was over the garage roof before it came down. Some days shit happens and will interfere with plans.

We’ve been wanting to get the tree trimmed at least or more likely cut down since it’s too big for our yard and has seen its better days. We were just talking about it the other day. I like the shade on the patio when it’s hot, but I don’t like the shade on our garden.

This picture is of a big maple branch on our tree that split and fell. There's a squirrel checking it out.

The tree broke on a clear and calm day.
