Iam not an expert in anyway. But it looks like it was very close to the driveway I wonder if that was a contributing factor.

It’s a well known fact that all big trees are dangerous, maliciously waiting to fall over and kill someone. 


They all need cutting down, I tell you!:sneaky2:



I reckon a judicious topping would have sorted that one out.


Anyway,  stuff happens, no one killed, all good

Wouldn't mind more detail on this one, it's a catastrophic failure in a garden , with massive targets nearby , huge liability really so wonder if it had been inspected last couple of years  ? K

Looks like the tree should have been felled before hand, Good post, Thanks for the upload Khriss.


It often amazes me how trees can support such massive structures with often little to no roots, this is a good warning to tree owners to check their trees.


Hope all is well?

Interesting how the home owner thinks he was lucky as its only damaged his lawn and hedge.

Guessing he hasn't read any of the national tree safety group publications
