Hidden defects

Why I don't like tree limbs over houses... Or trees too close to a house: Trees can look strong and healthy, hiding defects right up until catastrophic failure.

We're having the trees thinned around our cabin. This is how one of the maples looked inside.

Yup, it was hollow with only some rotten pulp at the core. We had an oak taken out with similar hidden defects.
