A common Walnut (Julans Regia) fell over.

After a period of over 5 years this common +100 year old Walnut (Julans Regia) has been starting lean over. It started to be severe approx 3 months ago. Well fimely after the tree had leafed we had a weekend of strong wind that was just too much for it, and it finally fell over during the night.
