Came back from the road trip to find the apartment complex was hit by high winds. A tree and the gas bbq were casualties.
Perhaps someone who is a tree expert can explain why the root ball is so small. The tree has been there 40+ years. My guess is the species isn’t suited for this climate.
The property manager told me the owners plan to replace the gas bbq and add two charcoal ones. She is less than thrilled.
The good news is no roofs were damaged and the carports survived where my truck was parked.
My apologies for the bad pun post title.
