Watching the storms roll in this afternoon I was stuck by (pun intended) by how I'd never considered lightning and the my mega tree before. Having moved in the last 12 months, we're now in a much more open area and spectacular bolts of lightning are much more visible so it got me thinking - am I putting a massive lightning rod in my front yard? Is it any more risky than having large trees? Has anyone had their mega tree struck? Or do you take steps to prevent this happening? Thanks!
