The tree was giving me a 130 degree slant and I knew there had been some fruit on it. Bonnie went to check and it could hardly have been a bear for the fruit was still on the tree.
She called later that morning to say that there had been a birch laying across the road when she was driving down Pilling's Road on the way to work.
My guess is heavy winds and prolific rain felled my lovely tree. Time to stake it back up and see if it can recover.
