    TBF teuchter is always wrong.
    Your point about the root system is correct in so far as my limited knowledge can allow me to have an informed opinion of such matters. I would like to know more about how you reversed into a tree.

    I was in the US. I was driving on the right (ie wrong) side of the road. And my navigator was giving me directions in a very very treacly Alabama drawl and making me impatient and annoyed. So it's all his fault. Probably.

    Discount the fence, three probables;
    1 - The council lawnmower (always manic men) best job left in public sector assuming it has not been sub contracted; which would make them definitely guilty.
    2 - The rain.
    3 - A tree hating neighbour.
    4 - Casual vandalism.

    It's not a strawman argument.

    If that poxy lawnmower knocked the tree over, then there was something very wrong with the tree and it is probably a good job that it came down now rather than when it was bigger. Seriously, there is no way one of those lawnmowers could knock a healthy tree of that size over.

    If anyone was worried about where all the bumble bees have gone, they are currently having a huge party amongst the bottle brush on my back door step.

    I watched a transit drive head on into a fifteen foot cherry tree at at least 30 mph in Brixton,the van was a write off,the driver survived although it was touch and go for a while.Twenty years later the tree is still in rude health.

    I hate to say this but Rushy is right. Spoke to some local kids who claim the tree fell over by itself :hmm:

    TBF the fight has never gone away, it's always there, bubbling away in the background. Has been for as long as I can remember (nearly 50 years).

    Probably been pissed on so many times over the years that the roots were eaten away. :eek:

    But yeah, falling over under their own steam is entirely possible, and from what that programme about Kew Gardens was saying a couple of years ago, the weirdness of our seasons over the last ten years hasn't helped.

    This is a lovely video.
    BackBone Productions presents "Nan's Brixton", a short conversational film, depicting the life and times of long-time Brixton resident Edie Cook.
