A tree fell at my parents house and hit their master BR while I was home with a baby sitter in the 60's Conrad. You could see the sky from their bedroom so it is possible.

Pretty slim.  My great, great, grandfather died that way.  I should point out that he was a lumberjack, so his chances were much higher.

Depends on what you are doing.

I do know of plenty who were killed while cutting them down.

and there have been a few windy days out in the woods with a few near misses just working in the woods.

Other than that it seems nearly impossible to get hit by a falling tree.

After thinking about it and without Googling anything, I would say the odds of being killed by a tree (including those in the tree industry are about 1 out of a million per year, that would be my guess, it happens more than one would think. O.k. It is roughly 1 in 3 million per year in the general population NOT including those in the tree industry, according to one website I looked up.

Probably the same as my getting a listing for $141 million--not that great.

But then again, why chance it.  If there's a storm, stay away from the falling trees.  Trim and prune dead limbs as you should.

I've seen a lot of trees fall, but in my 32 years of being in real estate I have not yet (touch wood) seen anyone DIE by a falling tree or die from falling from a tree.

Electrocution...yep

Drowning...almost (I saved that guy, which is why I stopped wearing "designer" on the job)

Suicide...three times yes.

Murder...only once.

 

But tree...zip.

My god, my life is a crime drama script!  haha!!
