|Wild Cherry Tree Smashes Corner Brace & Fence|
The second thicker upright post from the left is a true corner post. Luckily, the wires loop around it from both directions and terminate back around on themselves with wire clamps. Also, luckily, nothing is in our main pasture field right now.
|Cross Brace Knocked Out, But Electric Wires & Knife Switch OK!|
That post will have to be pulled, dug out, and replaced. This is a 10 strand High Tensile (HT) fence, so it requires double corner braces.

|Tree Cut Off - HT Wires Back In Position, Almost!|
We've had no problems with the "10 strand" other than a couple of trees falling on it. The picture below shows the remains of the last tree to fall back in this corner. We were lucky that time. It just missed the cross brace!
