Maybe it was the weight of the berries! The winds were not that strong.

Blimey - that's a big old tree. Glad nobody was hurt!

Hmm, lets think - sometime on the 12th before 3.03pm, when the photo was posted?

Looks like the tree had a very poor root system so top heavy and vulnerable to high winds dragging it over.

If they chop off the top and bottom they could leave a tree trunk bench.
