Yesterday we had 40mph gusts of wind. It was enough wind to blow our new little tree over! This picture is looking out the front of our house. The tree took down the stake too! Poor tree! As you can see from this picture, we are the only house on the block & the poor tree didn't have any protection from the strong winds. We have plenty of trees in the rear of the house, but this wind came from the side.
The builder came & re-staked the tree yesterday afternoon. The landscaper was supposed to come today & inspect the roots, but we didn't see anyone. Hopefully the Tree Doctor will come tomorrow & make sure the tree survives. The builder says he'll get us another one if this one doesn't make it.
