When Texas has a storm, it has a STORM. High winds, big hail, plenty of rain and wicked lightning and thunder. We were lucky last night, not a ton of hail, but man, did the wind wreak havoc. We have two trees in our front yard, both Arizona Ash. The arborist told us they have an average life expectancy of about 30-40 years. Ours have been growing since sometime in the fifties, so they're well past their prime. Since we've moved in, we've lost three huge limbs and last night in the storm we lost two more. We've been lucky, they haven't hit the house yet (knock, knock) but they sure can be a pain to clean up when you don't have a chainsaw.
