Had a close call this past week. Nothing that would affected the cabin thank goodness but never the less could have wiped out my trail camera and a couple new sheets of metal roofing. A Bull pine (yellow or sap pine) decided that it had stood upright long enough and fell. Barely missing a new trail camera by about 1 foot. The limbs just missed a stack of new roofing panels by inches. It was about 12-14" at the stump and about 50 feet in length. Normally I salvage down trees for firewood but with this being pine and completely rotted to the heart I just dumped it over the hill.
Once I thought about it this might have been a real problem if the timing was such and wind direction could have made it fall upon an approaching vehicle up the driveway. I was hoping the camera would have caught it as it fell but it didn't.
Maybe because it was off to the side and fell directly toward the camera and it didn't catch the movement.
