Fallen and falling trees

Seems everytime I go out, I notice yet another fallen or falling tree I'd not noticed before.

The storm of just over two weeks ago downed some of the biggest trees we have in our neck of the woods, and a bunch of the smaller ones as well.

While some of the downed trees cracked from the winds, others remained intact as they tumbled over, exposing huge root balls.

If you look closely as you hike or drive the area, you'll see others partially uprooted and leaning heavily.

They may have not completely toppled in the last storm, but they appear at risk to complete their fall come the next round of high winds. Or maybe, with time, gravity will finish what the storm started.
