We've been getting very violent afternoon thunderstorms here in Tucson. Last night, the grim reaper came for me--well, at least one of my trees. The winds were so strong the ash tree, one of four I've planted in my yard, was down on the ground. I put it back up, tied it to a pole for more support, and am hoping it's not going to die. This was a seven foot tall tree and I was hoping it was big enough to make it. Boy was I wrong. My other trees show no sign of damage.
