Look Out

This low hanging tree has its own warning sign. This could be a dangerous situation in the dark or if you are just not paying attention.

What a beautiful path!
But you are right about the dangerous situation about that tree.

Yes, it could be. But, by the way, the tree must be very precious?

useful warning sign I suppose but it does spoil the view

Leif Hagen said...

An especially dangerous situation if a semi-truck tried to drive thru there in the dark!

Clytie said...

Huh. Around here they would just cut the tree down, shred the remains and be done with it.

I'm glad they have a warning for it though!

Rob and Mandy said...

Good sign! Here, they would just cut the tree.

So is the tree a special tree. I understand about not cutting back any tree but if it is in the way??????

Love the Lewis house. they just don't build them like they used to. MB

Up here, sad to say, they would use a chain saw.

Good eye, Lois. And a nice capture.

Of course, the powers-that-be could just cut the darn limb off!

This weather is nuts, isn't it? I can't recall anything like it in the 25 years we've lived in Florida. I mean, we'd always get a couple rather cold nights, but then it would warm up again. Not this year!

Lois said...

The city of Tallahassee has strict ordinances in place regarding it's trees so that's why you see signs like this one around town.

I am glad they have the ordinances in place to protect the trees. Once they start cutting they might as well chop the entire thing down.

I've never seen a street sign like that. I think it's great that they posted a warning sign about the tree limb instead of just cutting it down. It might also be dangerous in the dark if you were riding a very big horse:)

Even respecting trees this seems a quite dangerous situation at night.

Halcyon said...

Interesting. I guess it's good they are protecting nature!

Bonnie Bonsai said...

That's quite a hazard to the motorists indeed! Hope the council will do something about it before any untoward accident can happen.

It must be a nice tree. Perhaps they could just move the road!

Pretty street - must be cuz they protect the trees - low hanging and all. Very fun find, Lois. My friend in San Pedro (adjacent to PV) had an encounter with a low hanging limb, she was tying her daughter's shoe lace & wham! when she lifted her head. Limb - 1, head - ****. The limb lost in the end though.
I do hope you are able to stay warm. Not much use for sub-freezing gear in Florida - usually...so much for global warming -- we are having too warm a spell must be sucking it up from the East coast way.

Gee, only eight feet? They like living dangerously.

wow, that is a low hanging tree.

Lisa Wilson said...

Strange! Seems like human safety should be more important in this case.
