The Branch Weighed 6,500+ lbs

(Update from my brother)

The crain that lifted the tree trunk off my house had a scale on it - showing how much weight it was lifting....

The tree was cut back from what was laying all over the roof of the garage to the point on the edge of the roof (picture below)

That 10-12 foot section from the edge of my the main tree it split off from. That section alone weighed 3,400 lbs.

The whole length of tree branch was in the 6,500 to 7,000 lb range, all laying ON my garage

Damn. Good thing it didn't fall on someone or in a place where it could do even more damage.

Good Grief!
That's more than two cars!
Praise be that it was a garage and not people.
I guess you could consider that the "silver lining?"
