Award-winning 100-year old tree damaged in a storm

One of Arlington’s award-winning trees dropped a huge branch causing hundreds of power outages.

Power has slowly been coming back on in neighborhoods hard hit by Thursday night’s violent storms.

Arlington County was hit especially hard with thousands of customers losing power. But one “famous” tree put hundreds of people in the dark.

Busy Harrison Street in North Arlington has been closed since Dominion Energy Crews from Richmond rolled in to fix a downed power line.

Thursday’s storm brought down a massive branch from an old tree. The force was so great as it crashed to the ground, it pulled down a utility pole a 100 feet away.

Tamara Martin was at work when it happened.

“My partner called me about 12 times, so I knew something happened and I needed to come home,” said Martin.

When she found out what happened she was heartbroken. Because it’s not just any old tree.

“It’s an award-winning tree,” Martin said.

Every year, Arlington recognized notable trees, to highlight heir beauty and environmental benefits. Back in 2013, Arlington recognized Tamara’s American Linden tree.

“I was just shocked. As I said, this is our prized tree. Then to see, oh, my goodness, the damage,” she said. “But, everything else, it’s intact.”

Martin said she just had the tree trimmed to prevent something like this from happening. But, they’re thankful their beloved tree is still standing.

Most of all, they are thankful the huge branch didn’t hit a car, or worse, a person. They live near a few schools and a popular park.
