You can actually see about how tall this tree used to be

These pictures are unusual for one reason only. As you can see there is a big break near what looks like the top. This was one of the tallest trees in our yard. The breakage occurred a few months ago, I think around July or August, but because of all the leaves, we couldn’t see exactly where it was broken. We had thought it had been just a large branch. The funny thing about it was the morning we found this hanging across our driveway; there had been no storms or strong winds in the area.

Now that the leaves are mostly gone, we can clearly see that this was the trunk part of the very top of the tree. Looking at the thickness of the trunk and the breakage, we are baffled as to what could have caused this since this was a very healthy pecan tree which was always very green and leafy during the spring and summer.

If you take the part that is broken and hanging down and just imagine it standing straight up, you can see how tall the tree was. What could have broken our tree in such a way that it wasn’t just the top, but the break was many feet down the trunk. That would take some force, much more than any winds or storms we have had around here this year.

The morning we found this, there was no sign of damage to any of the other trees. Usually when there are high winds and strong storms we get a few, small dead branches on the ground from each tree the next day. As I said, the night before this, there was no storm or winds.

The length you see hanging is actually shorter than it originally was. Rich had to hack off quite a length of branches so we could get the car out of the drive way. Figure on about 3 more feet in length than what is presently visible, as the uppermost branches were actually touching the ground in the driveway after the breakage.

Remember, Richard has photographed objects near this area on some of our returns home as is shown in the picture below and the street view shared with us by Stone D’Arte in an Update on an Interesting sighting.

The front yard, not 30-40 feet from the damaged tree. Taken last year

Damaged trees and forestry is not new in UFO sightings. There have been several reports over the years that show they often come very close to homes and properties. I have listed a few links for you below.

I know what our theory is but we would like to hear yours. Are they getting too close?

This picture was taken on different night of the same area.
