High Risk Of Hazard (HRH) Tree

This tree has a substantial lean away from the camera. 

1.  The pink arrow shows that there is no good trunk flare on the back side of a lean.  A leaning structure must have support on the back side of the lean. 

2.  This tree has a hollow, which alone does not pose a HRH, however, the crack associated with the hollow (blue arrows) does pose a HRH.

3.  This tree is leaning over the back yard with many targets.  Remember for a tree to be an HRH it must have a target.

Climber BEWARE, this tree not safe to climb!!!!!!
