  1. Those trees were not accustomed to high winds, they must have been sheltered by other trees that were recently removed.

    Had a neighbor that got nervous about several huge white pines that he thought might fall on his house (even though they were perfectly healthy) and decided to have them taken down. Over the next few winters, he lost several dozen spruce that were nicely protected by those big pines. Oops.

    They looked like hell laying helter skelter all over, some falling across out private road, until I decided to buck them all up so they would lay down and rot.

  2. They must be in a concrete house to have withstood that much wind. Amazing.

  4. A long period of ground-soaking rain such that the roots become loose in the soil, followed by strong winds can cause this kind of tree falls.

  5. Looks like the front yard just got cleared out, and firewood will be a bit easier to harvest this fall.

  8. The actual very definition of "windfall." Wood cutters would get the wood for nothing. Not how it is used much these days.

  12. Starker here,
    Spruce and other conifers have shallow roots and become a liability over a certain height. Ask your homeowners insurer.
