Oh, you have to love websites that load perfectly fine, then redirect you away from the page you actually wanted to read for -GASP- daring to have javascript disabled. Enterprise news just lost a potential reader for a greedy, poorly designed script.

TheHighlandHowler: There was no way of knowing that it was a bad tree

That's when I stopped reading.

From a little back from your quote:  On that Thursday morning the zip line was installed between two trees in the Dupill's heavily wooded backyard.

I pretty much knew what the rest of the article would say.  How could a tree so rotten not be obvious during installation?
