    I do tree work, and after this storm we had yesterday, well let’s just say I’ve been busy. Pine trees are the number one tree I’ve seen knocked down. If you have any around your house or driveway, get rid of them. Nothing but trouble.

    This Ram is destined for the scrapyard.

    Yeah, but this one was at least two years out from that.

    We had a guy call us panicking his shed was gonna get crushed at any minute. There was maybe a 30’ tall arbor-vita that was kinda leaning over. Might have made a dent if it fell. Meanwhile there’s pancaked cars, downed power lines, and trees on houses all over.

    Gonna be heading out tomorrow as well. Debating on Tundra parts, or buying another rifle with the extra money. Haha

    That tree did the owner a favor, now he can use the insurance money for a Tundra. :D

    A similar thing happened to my girlfriends car a few years ago while we were living in Tallahassee. Wasn’t even that bad of a storm that rolled through.

    It’s pretty tough to avoid pines if you live in the southeast though.

    Best thing is to not park near trees with a storm coming.
