A tense afternoon as a maple tree is almost uprooted by tropical storm Irene. The Somerville, MA Police Department was called to the scene where they taped off the area and closed the street. The Department of Public Works arrived soon after. The end loader pulled up behind the tree and shored it up with a chain. The guy driving the end loader sat there for more than an hour while the storm wound down. Two guys in bucket trucks with chain saws took the tree down quickly, even though the wind was still gusting from time to time. They did a great job! If this tree had let loose, it would have ended up in my living room!
