The Scene of the Crime

Well here are a few pics of the damage from the tree. Our poor car was towed away early the next morning and is being fixed up. The REAL kicker in this situation is that the tree that is on our property is a township owned tree that they do not maintain.

So I called the township asking that someone please come out and inspect our tree before another, more serious, accident occurs. So they sent a guy from Public Works who stood at the bottom of the tree, looked up and said, "The tree is healthy *shrug* I don't know what to tell ya..." Since when do healthy trees drop huge limbs in the middle of a calm, dry, breezeless night?








Below, you can see how long a branch this was.

Oh no, it is perfectly normal for healthy trees to shed branches (insert rolling eyes) I would write a letter to the township, if nothing else to document your concern.
