Chained Tree's Revenge

in #aswcontest2 years ago

The chain was already embedded in this tree ten years ago, when the current owners bought the house it lives behind. I suspect the tree had been chained together in an effort to fix it from splitting and prevent portions from falling on to the house or garage. On September 6, 2015 a large limb from the tree, nearly a third of it, fell. Fortunately, aside from some very minor roof damage to the house, the only casualty was a barbecue grill. These picture are taken several months after the large branch broke off, showing the chain still holding on tightly.
