Botched tree removal damages north Nashville home

Posted: Updated: Apr 30, 2014 11:20 PM
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A north Nashville home sustained minor damage after a tree-removal project didn’t go as planned.

News 2 captured video around 1 p.m. of tree cutters with three vehicles and ropes tied to a tree on the corner of Knowles and Dr. D.B. Todd Boulevard.

The idea was, presumably, to have the tree land in the front yard. However, the plan backfired as the tree struck a shed and a portion of the home.

“It looks like they cut it wrong. The weight ratio probably had a lot to do with it,” tree cutter Danny Thornton said.

Thornton was not on this particular job, but told News 2 some of his workers were working for someone else Wednesday.

“It wasn’t my job,” he said. “If it was my job, it wouldn’t have gotten done like that. We would have pieced everything out.”

No injuries were reported.
