That’s a powerful tree!
A 14-foot Christmas tree appears to be crashing through the roof of a one-story house Thursday, Dec. 20 in Seattle’s Magnolia neighborhood. Homeowner Patrick Kruger created the illusion of the tree crashing through the roof by cutting a 14-foot tree into two pieces and attaching the top six-foot section to a piece of plywood that’s bolted to the roof. According to MyNorthwest.com, Kruger, who is an architect, studied the physics of an object breaking through a roof then added sheathing and typical roof construction materials to create the effect.

The National Christmas Tree has died
Fare tree well: The National Christmas Tree, which sat on the lawn just south of the White House, has died one year following its being moved there. That process was itself the reason for the tree’s demise, according to the National Park Service — the resultant “transplant shock” did in the once-impressive Colorado blue spruce. Another tree has already been identified to take its place, and we hope they’ve got a more successful approach this time. (Photo by Elvert Barnes) source
