I don't know why people insist on destroying healthy coniferous trees
when they get uprooted by wind.
All they need to do is dig out the ground around the root ball and set
the tree back into place and cover the roots and let the roots
re-establish contact with the ground. Put up a few anchor lines to hold
the tree in place for a few years.
Yeah, tell that to your homeowner's insurance company. Once the tree
sustains major damage, they're going to consider it a hazard, and
under the terms of the policy, the homeowner is expected to remove
known hazards on his or her property. Prop a damaged tree back up and
if/when it comes down again, better hope it doesn't cause any injuries
or property damage, because the insurance company won't cover it.
Nor me from Avast. And there does not seem to be anything amiss in my
PC (fingers crossed!!!!) after visiting the site.
But now that somebody's mentioned they had a problem, I'm thinking maybe
I'll just re-image on GPs.
Hey asshole: have you ever seen what one of these trees look like a year or
two after "standing up"? They look like a 8" x 10' post in the ground with
a few small new growth branches sprouting out. Nothing less than a tornado
is going to knok it down.
If you want to suck off your insurance company, that's fine, but shove the
advice up your ass where you probably put a lot of other sutff.
I read of a case where a boy was playing
in the root hole when such happened. Dad
totally frieked out. Shovel, and started
digging. A few minutes later, the boy's
voice is heard "Dad, what are you doing?"
Dad frieked out. The boy (Mormon, of course)
said "I heard your voice telling me to
get out of the hole, and so I did."
It is funny.
The tree I cut up last fall was not as thick, but as tall and when I cut
the big piece of the trunk off, it took over night, but the rest of the
turnk raised up about 6 or 10 feet.
Cottonwood tree. No root ball showing as far as I noticed. I could
just reach the tree standing on the 2nd step of a 6 foot ladder, and now
it's about 18 feet from the ground.

I did a big 3 stem Black Locust last year that had blown down into a farmer
s field. 2 of the stems where in the air full length, I cut them up and the
3rd stem came up about 2 ft. Full tree cut up and not one cut anywhere ne
ar the ground!! Then I went back in the fall and was working on another on
e I fell right next to that stump. It proceeded to stand back up to a 45 d
egree while I was there.
Scared the bejazus out of me as I was cutting when it started and I thought
it was another tree starting to fall on me with all that popping and crack
