Oh no....Storm? Is there a way you can replant a cutting of the tree somehow?
The storm came in yesterday afternoon for all of twenty minutes. Not sure what we will do.
Your willow! Was there a microburst? That's a sad Hunter all right.
We have just been getting these quick, torrential storms for the past several weeks. Been here 14 years, lost one tree many years ago, have now lost three trees in three weeks.
Oh wow, that's awful!
Am a bit emotionally attached...was gift from kids for Mother's Day well over ten years ago. My folks wanted their ashes spread underneath it when they pass. Guess they will just have to live another twenty years.
There's always a silver lining! :0)
So sad. Something similar happened across the way from us a few years back. A number of weeping willows were felled by a storm, and they are irreplaceable. They are so elegant. Very sorry.
Surprised we didn't lose power also. As Em said, could have been worse. We could have lost a tree close to the house and had even more damage. Sigh
So sad. That tree was absolutely amazing.
It was gorgeous and the centerpiece to my front yard. Big Sigh.
Oh no! I feel for you and Hunter, that tree was a beauty. What a weird storm? And 3 trees in 3 weeks?
We are hoping one will survive but it lost it's entire top third. We have just had the strangest weather.
I am so sorry - you know I love a good tree... that is a scary wind storm!
This was my favorite. We are having a professional take a look at it but I do not have much hope.
Oh no BB!- Heartbreaking! Im so sorry that happened to your beautiful tree. It was so majestic.Save the wood and have a heirloom piece of furniture made.And maybe plant a new one for Fathers Day...?
Thank you for mentioning saving some of the wood...hadn't thought of that. We shall plant another if it can not be saved.
That must have been a microburst as that weeping willow looks to be down in a depression so should have been able to withstand high wind gusts. I love weeping willows and it seems every golf course in the South has them posted next to a lake as they do love their water.I also get emotional attachments to trees and remember hearing that within days of my Grandparents home being sold a huge oak tree on the front lawn under which my mum and I both played as children was unceremoniously cut down....I was livid,
They are such beautiful trees and this one has so many memories. If we can save a tree we will but I am always amazed how many home owners want their lot totally cleared.
Oh, no! I am so sorry about that beautiful tree! And about that storm! But thank goodness all of you are fine and unharmed. I hope you can save him, or replant in some way.
I'm so sorry and understand your sadness. Trees are majestic, beauties that hold a very special place in my heart. Really, this is such a shame. People are insane the way they just cut down trees. Old tress!! This storm sounds amazing. xo
Tree condolences from here - very sad to lose a tree, especially one as beautiful as that one!
So sorry you've lost your tree friend, and such a beauty. Your quick, torrential storms, our brutal hot winds out of season ... what's the world coming to!
Heartbreaking indeed. I'm so sorry that happened.
so sad... saving some of the wood is a lovely idea, I'm thinking that where you live there would be a lumber yard where someone on staff really knows about wood, and you could get advice on cutting and drying it properly so that it would yield cuts from which something could be made.
