If anyone else has had trouble with the link, I'll be happy to help. For
example, I sent Jim a note with a pic of the tree before the failure. I
have other (copyrighted by others) pix.

How many believe that periodic flooding was an important causal factor?

Best,
Wayne

Couldn't make sense of the links so I've replied with uktc.
The cause of failure, i.e. reason, is evident Michael, but the overriding
question is why was it not foreseeable - if the tree had been inspected?
Assuming that it had been inspected, would there have been any external
features to arouse suspicion? (With the additional assumption that the
inspector was competent.)
The sub-text is that yes please, I would like to know more about the
inspections, as that implies they existed.
Best,
Jim

Hilarious.

Anybody that was at Claus Mattheck's talks last month knows the answer.

Heart root, destroyed the connection of the limb to the trunk, new limb
wood was only oriented vertically and the static load (perhaps because of
water uptake) became greater than that which could be supported.

If you want to know more about the inspections ask me in private.

I agree with Jim. it happens for a reason. I like the juxtaposition
of
the
failed limb and the seat. Lucky indeed if the injured were sat on that.

I'd appreciate y'all's comments on this case.

How many on the forum believe that limbs fail for no reason?
