The scale on the side says 300 cm, centimeters.

Conversion says that a blown down tree might create a root ball hole in the embankment, that could be twenty feet wide by ten feet deep

Does that sound like a good thng on a dam?

Imagine this tree, growing on the side of an embankment dam. See how far the roots extend.

They would be right into the canal, and be a major concern for engineers, worried about PIPING and seepage, which would cause a failure of the dam.

Perhaps MS Maier didn't realise that when she posted this?
