    A tree fell across our house this morning. No damage except the two little trees underneath.

    I’m no expert but I reckon it could be a fallen tree. From the Latin Fall: to fail to maintain a vertical stance. Ignore me, I’m a bit bored and firing off rubbish.........

    I tried to figure that out too, but I can't see the leaves clearly enough. I can see that it was dying long before it fell over though.

    The vines that grew around that tree may have killed it !

    Looks like you were lucky! That could have done some major damage.

    Many years ago, someone with infinite wisdom, named those things a "blow down".

    Wow. That's going to be a mess to clean up. I'm glad nobody was injured.

    Not very many if it's as rotten as it appears to be in the photo.

    Interesting that asking what kind of tree it is has such a reaction here.
    Oh well.

    I think it's fascinating a tree that size should have such a small root-ball.
