King of the dodads and patron saint of distracted driving.
Not too much different than 2020 models.

I found another shot of the crazy tree guy but from this angle down in the bottom right I'm sure they are using that bucket to protect the shed from falling limbs. That's smart, must have been the guy on the ground because the guy up the tree is not smart.

We don't need to go to all that bother.
Over here we have perfected the self-felling tree.



It happened yesterday in Ealing, London, during unusually high winds for the time of year.

I first saw that as "cooling herself".

I'm just wondering if that was an unusually small root structure, or whether most roots, perhaps rotten, were left in the ground when the tree fell.

Perhaps Gravdigr can help here?

Is that a sycamore? Regardless with impermeable surface all around it the roots won't spread far from the tree.

I had a blue spruce at the corner of the front yard where the driveway met the road. A strong wind blew it over but the roots didn't break. Since they all grew away from the pavement there was nothing to hold the tree up on those two sides. All I had to do is stand it up but there was still nothing to keep it up so I cut it up.

Having looked at a number Street View shots taken over a period of several years I'm not sure that it is although the leaf looks the part.
I think it is probably a London Plane tree which I find is...

A real city slicker, the London plane is the capitalís most common tree.
As a hybrid of American sycamore and Oriental plane, it was first discovered in the 17th century then widely planted in the 18th.
For all practical purposes the answer to your question is 'yes'!

London Plane tree

Ealing, London, Street View

Ah yes, we discussed the Plane trees awhile back, they have the same bark as the Sycamore. I'd forgotten them. Thank you Sir.

Could be root rot.

Blanket term, I'm pretty sure.

I feel you man. Why can't this just be something we do for each other, just a little patriotic gesture?

Things will change once everyone has an immediate family member who has died. I'm guessing December.
