We had some good rain here today but no wind so I don't know what made this big branch fall from a HUGE beech tree in our side yard???? We just discovered it. It hit an apple tree on the way down too. I think the apple tree will be OK, I hope! The beech is pretty near the house so I guess we are going to have to have it checked, if IT came down it would devastate the house!!!!!It is a large branch that splits into 2 branches, as you can see here.
