20. Yep, big trees are scary in a tropical storm or hurricane.

I live in No. FL. in an old growth oak forest. After Irma, we had no power for 4 days because of all the trees in our area that were down on power lines or that took out transformers. We got our trees trimmed afterwards and 2 removed (out of 26 oak trees) but if a big enough storm hit us directly, we'd still be in danger. So wishing you good luck and that your trees stay up or if they go down don't hit anything really important.
