Beware of the tree!

A large Poplar or Cottonwood, if you are from the USA.
Often called 'the widowmaker' for their trick of suddenly dropping branches or falling over.

One almost flattened us in the South of France a month or so ago. Whack! Right across the N20 about 100 yards in front of us.

I'm not too keen on them mostly due to their lack of gravitational stability, but you do see a lot of them. I guess people like them.
They do seem to be quite poplar.

I'll get my hat..
