The tree was 140 ft. tall and was 60 in. D. B. H. and 60 ft. from the ground  to the first branch. http://www.afrc.uamont.edu/cookie.htmhttp://http://

Sad to see a tree that has stood for so long through wind and fire to finally fall down. I wonder why it finally toppled. Surely it had been through high winds before. ::)

Loblolly has a shorter and fatter tap root than other SYP's and when growing in a very moist ground or confronted with hardpan may not develop much depth. The lateral root structure is then depended upon to hold the tree up and this structure is susceptible to root rot which destroys the footing of the tree.  Even if healthy, the lateral root system may not be enough to hold up a mature tree in a high wind if the ground has become soft from rain. Among other reasons, this is a viable one. :P

Can you save a pine tree once pine beetles get into it?
