Werd Insel Zürich tree crashes down

A very big branch of a tree crashed down today because of the wind. Normally there are alot of people in exactly that place. Today none as fate would have it. It could have been very very bad.

Re: Werd Insel Zürich tree crashes down

It‘s due to the dry weather. Many trees - especially fruit and beech are shedding branches to survive, not tormenting dropping leaves...
