Louisville’s urban forests are one of its greatest assets, but as we all know from the past 6 months of storms, they can also be a pain when they fall on power lines or cars. A tipster wrote in with a few snapshots of Windstorm Jr. damage in the Cherokee Triangle; this time a massive oak tree took out power, a car, and most of the sidewalk. This tree meant business, too. The car it smashed on Cherokee Road contained a chainsaw, conveniently located in the trunk… underneath the tree.
There are several more photos of the Highlands destruction scene after the click, and we also threw in a couple photos of a tree we saw in Old Louisville a couple weeks ago that had landed on a mansion turned commercial building for good measure.
