When we first moved into our house about 12 years ago, there were many tall gum trees (eucalypts) on the property. Since then, we've lost, um, let me see, one, two, three, four, ooooh about eight, plus a 60 metre liquidambar.
The latest branch/es, about 30m, fell off the tree at the front of the house, just before we left for our summer holiday. The power lines came down, and we had to replace a few tiles on the garage roof.
