Historic Bungalow Damaged by Fallen Tree

The homeowners of 5733 Beechwood Avenue received a shock on Thursday evening (April 4, 2012) when a large tree fell onto their home. The porch appears to be heavily damaged. There was no wind or storm that night. It looks like the tree suffered from age, disease, and the shearing by Indianapolis Power and Light. Neighbors noted that the tree was imbalanced after the power company cut most of the branches facing Beechwood and none facing the home. Living in an urban forest does pose its hazards, but this spring reminds us of the beauty as well. We were relieved to learn that everyone in the home is okay.
