I'm reminded of a wind event near us in SE Kentucky in the late 1980's. It was determined to be a micro-burst. Localized and affecting singularly but one tree, a northern red oak, the tree was thoroughly dissembled with some of it's parts reduced to toothpick-sized particles. The power of that wind event held us in awe...as a species, growing in SE Kentucky, they were a gnarly tough wood.
