Re: Honey locust lightning strike

Barry Irby
Years ago lightning hit a poplar tree about 10' from a friend's deck. It had a huge bulge in it like some of palm trees after the lightening. The bulge was basically mush. Slivers the size of toothpicks flew out and hit the old dry treated wood deck frame. They were imbedded like whiskers. You could not pull them out without breaking them. Always been glad I was not on the deck when it happened.

That is one amazing picture. I thought you were going to show us a picture of something turn out of wood from a tree that had been struck. Not from that tree.
