I had to cut up a 24 inch hollow tree yesterday that lightning hit and set on fire . Of course it took out the fence when it burned down. It was on the back side of property line and no one new it was on fire .
Old timers will not burn fire wood from a tree that was lightning struck.
I should clarify... It was not hit by lightning but literally was blown over same week last year as the one piece I left shown in the picture. So I was using that saying as it literally happened same place and time
