The Lucky Gardener

Now that was a tree!

The intense rain and wind storms of mid-March left staggering damage to trees and property throughout the Hudson Valley. Our house lost power for the second time in as many weeks, though we were spared the structural devastation so many others experienced.

The giant Oak tree that belonged to the stump in the attached photo crashed down on a client’s house, taking with it siding, roofing, decking, patio and other smaller trees.

I measured the diameter of the tree at over six feet. My friend Matt (shown inside the tree) is no shrimp himself. This was one of the largest trees I’ve ever seen in the Northeast, certainly the largest I’ve ever been able to crawl into.
