The second photo is classic tornado damage. Top twisted off. Straight wind never does that.
Manage 80 acre tree farm in central Missouri and Mesquite timber and about a gozillion saguaros in Arizona.

What a mess. The brother of a friend got killed while cleaning up a storm throw as a cutter. 3 years of formal education in forestry. Won championships as a feller. 21 years of age...  :'(

I always have to think about him and wipe of some tears when i see pictures like this. Be safe out there!

This isn't much but haven't had any real bad storms lately. This was Mondays job. It was from a sunnyday Sunday storm, blue skies and lots of wind.

  

 
The whole tree had to go.

Nice pics. Luckily we don't get that here in Rhodes. From time to time we do get some strong winds and some small tornadoes but it's certainly not something usual...
Every man's proble can be solved with a chansaw and high explosives. And a gun. And maybe a screwdriver. A cordless drill wouldn't hurt either.

I think a truck full of tools will do...
