I have seen a swath of trees on the edge of a creek bed that had limbs sheared over about 100 yards at a uniform level. Around 20 foot high.

I have such a tree in my garden I call it my Fukushima tree.There's quite a fascinating backstory,well fascinating to me and one of my best friends.The night before the Fukushima catastrophe,there was a big storm in this area,over the town 8 clix away,and out here in the Bush.This Syringa tree in my garden blew over and now grows horizontally,and Thrives My best friend's husband is clairvoyant,and she told me sometime after,that he told her a large Ufo went over the town,he could feel it and "tracked" it till it went into the ocean off Mozambique,the neighbouring country close by.
Now whether That part is true,i cannot say.But i do recall a lot of storm damage in the town,and rumours of tall trees being severed cleanly at their tops,like a straight cut.Lots of people called it a "strange" storm at the time for reasons they couldn't quantify.
Awesome thread and pics,s+f
Let's not forget to give a tip of the hat to our mycologically inclined friends. Many trees rely on them.

I love that picture Night Star, it reminds me of a story near and dear to my heart.
One time I was walking with this little boy into the woods and he said, "Mr. Mason, it's really dark and I'm scared."
And I said, "You're scared, kid?!? What about me? I gotta walk out of here alone!"
Oh i get it; because you eventually realized the boy was a figment of your mushroom induced psychosis.
You trippy guy you. 😂
awesome pictures thank you for sharing

The old saying goes "life will find a way". Trees love to prove this saying correct. A resilient bunch, they are the oldest living organism on earth. Trees do not die of old age. They remove pollution from the air. They can flood their leaves with chemicals called phenolics when insects try to eat them. They can help you find your way when lost in the woods. They even cool down the air, not only by providing shade but by releasing water vapor into the air.
And sometimes they just don't give a crap what happens to them, they keep on keeping on.
I get knocked down, but I get up again.
What came first the tree or the silo?
The only tree to survive after a tsunami hit this area of Japan
See, life finds a way
You can strike them down but they'll come back 4 times as strong
They are stronger than rocks
They can do splits
Land has fallen away? No problem!
Maybe one day this little guy...
Will be like this
Really a fence!? Pffffft Nom Nom Nom!
More Crazy Trees
Some random tree facts for your brain cells
And the oldest:
The world’s oldest known living tree sprouted sometime during the last Ice Age, roughly 9,550 years ago. This 16-foot spruce in the Dalarna province of Sweden may look more like a Charlie Brown Christmas Tree, but don’t be fooled: this little guy’s root system got started back when the British Isles were still connected to Europe by an ice bridge.
