Deciduous Trees Caught With Pants Up

Yesterday's massively heavy snowfall has downed hundreds of tree limbs, and in some cases small trees, in our neighborhood. All the trees were deciduous which normally don't carry that kind of snow load because they usually drop their leaves before snow gets heavy. Not this year, though. They hadn't yet had time to get naked for winter and the weight of the snow just tore them apart.

Your coniferous trees, evergreens, are built for snow and I didn't see any that looked troubled.

  1. Neighbor across the street from me had a big branch of a juniper break off, so evergreens are not completely immune from snow damage.

    BTW thanks for plugging my blog on your site. I will try to keep the suckiness quotient high.
