Tell that to the three I have on the ground "out back" as a result of the
2004 hurricanes. Of course, two of them are still living :) So is
another one that was struck and nearly girdled by lightning a handful of
years ago. The *are* survivors.
OTOH, they are constantly having limbs die. The amount of tree trash from
our 30+ oaks is phenomonal! Most of it is pencil size and smaller twigs but
some is larger, some up to 15" in diameter and 15-20' long. Anytime I am
around live oak trees I always check what is above my head.
Like last year!
I had to replace the fuel gauge sensor on my Chevrolet pickup. I had an oak
tree that overhung the driveway, so I bought a chain lift and attached it to
the lowest limb (HF, $40). Removing 8 bolts from the pickup's bed, I was
able to lift the bed off the truck thereby gaining access to the gas tank
and the fuel sensor. Shortly thereafter I sold the chain lift on Craigslist
Let's hear it for the old oak tree.
