The tree blocked traffic for a time, but the streets were cleared later that day.
A city arborist told the couple the tree may have fallen because of tension caused by the large limbs. After a truck hit one of the major limbs several months ago, an arborist checked the tree and said it was OK, Ms. Davidson said.
"The tree was really beautiful," she said. "It had astonishingly long limbs. Its canopy was huge. It shaded the street and probably two-thirds of our house."
