Since we have been through about a decade plus or minus of huge snow storms, hurricanes, etc. husband is terrified of the tree at our curb falling on our house. It is probably close to 70 years old, based on the age of the house. As one drives up the street the trees to the front view do look lovely hanging over the street – but they are also hanging over the wires and can take them down. During Hurricane Sandy the tree across the street fell down across the road and just missed the tree in front of our house and the wires which are on our side of the street. Scared the heck out of us.
