I know, W...It's in the neighbour's garden. I worry about it in the wind! But the good thing is, in a storm it's likely to fall the other way! Hopefully!

Lets hope so...still, if it is healthy it should be fine....they are meant to be on mountain sides aren't they...and its plenty windy there.

Hope so, Karen...it's got plenty of broken limbs (all pointing in the 'right' direction)...if it came down the other way...no chez moi!

Bit scary for you then Karen.....lets hope it happens when you're in Africa if it's going to happen at all!

Feel the same about our trees,K.Seem to be the same height.

I suspect that you are both right, KS and W...it must have been there for donkeys years! Probably it's too big to blow over...Storms tend to just take the tops off trees like this, I think?
But, like you J...there's that little nagging doubt...

A beauty. Do birds sing from the top?

There are lots of 'lesser spotted' woodpeckers in that tree, M...! They don't sing...but they 'tap'!
