    High winds took down a big boxelder tree and plopped it right on top of 2 of our green houses. Took me 5 hours to clean op the mess and I told my guys on the landscapeing crew to take it home for camp far wood. It will be about a 4 grand fix to get the houses back into shape.

    Wow, how much wind did you have to shred the tree like that?!! I know Boxelders aren't all that tough, but still...
    Bad deal about the damage. I see some of the frame is bent but there must be more than that to cost that kind of money...or no?

    That stinks. Several years ago as kids my sister and a friend of hers where almost flattened by a large box elder. They were taking a walk, it got a little windy, and my sister heard the tree snapped. Luckily she looked up in time and saw it falling her way and was able to push her friend. It fell right were they were standing. I'm not a huge fan of box elder.
