The hazards of living in a neighborhood with mature trees

This car belonged to our neighbors across the street. They had only parked it in their driveway 20 minutes before this huge cherry tree toppled on top of it. Thankfully no one was in the car when the tree fell. The tree had decay at the base of the trunk, and  that along with the wet weather might have contributed to the fall..
Keith went over and helped cut some of the limbs off the tree, which provided us with plenty of wood for next winter. The rest of the tree had to be professionally removed. And the car was obviously totaled.
