Century-old tree splits down middle, damaging 2 Poland homes

Local News

A nearly 100-year-old tree in Poland Village fell down on not one, but two homes on Tuesday.

The neighbors were pulling out of the driveway and watched it happen. They said it was a slow-motion split right down the middle.

The fallen tree stretched across the two properties on Water Street and Morse Place.

It likely happened due to the ground being soaked from this week’s rain.

No one was hurt but both homes and garages were damaged.

A tree company was out all afternoon, sawing away.

The homeowners said this isn’t the first tree down in their yard. They’re considering cutting a few more before they fall, too.
