Pines usually lose a top or break along the trunk, but three of our four destroyed shore pines were uprooted by the wind. This one created a twenty-four inch hole with eighteen inches of water in it. The roots also lifted several large rhododendrons into the air.
Doreen stands in the triple top of a large Shore Pine that tangled with a Beauty of Littleworth and won. Another took down a Sourwood tree with it.
We also lost a Pinion Pine and two Japanese Red Pines. In addition, a Scotch Pine, a Japanese Black Pine, a Lodgepole Pine, and an Austrian Pine all tipped over, but I was able to right them with cables.
