Course Description:
The southern California December 2011 wind storm caused thousands of trees to fail. Many trees didn't fail and withstood the wind gusts while others were more vulnerable to windthrow failure and major limb breakage. Mr. Green examines some of the reasons why some trees failed and what can be learned from these failures.
