    If lawyers are working on anything at the moment, it's finding a way to sue for undue trauma for those on the Mark Twain that saw the tree fall.

    yes.unless a storm knocks them down, really trees grow and grow and then they die and then they fall cause the roots don't take hold of the soil anymore, but there could be other causes as well. but the dirt could of been softened, and that will cause tree's to fall cause they have no way to hold on and down they go!

    Let's see. The three part checklist:

    1. Insurance or assets - check
    2. Liability - check, maybe
    3. Major damages - d'oh!

    Back to contract review and conference calls...

    Re: 60 + year old tree falls into river

    If a 60 year old Disney tree falls, and no one is around to hear it, what kindof sound does it make?

    I'm guessing its a Goofy Fall. Yyaaaahhhhaaaahhooeeyyy
    There is no right or wrong in this debate. It is simply a matter of perspective.

    3. Isn't the emotional trauma of seeing a tree fall enough these days?

    Someone who was on the Mark Twain will certainly claim some sort of psycological damages do to their "brush with death"

    Re: 60 + year old tree falls into river

    Some of the trees were here before the park. Large trees are planted around the orange trees to protect then from wind. I saw it in a Disneyland documentary I watched. Some of the trees around the jungle cruse were already there too

    Those would be the large eucalyptus trees to see behind the fire station on Main Street. I don't know if there are any elsewhere. I think the tree that fell was a pine tree, which isn't used as a wind break.

    Incidentally, oranges weren't the only crop that was grown. There were also walnut trees as well. And the oldest tree in Disneyland is a palm tree near the JC, which is currently 116 years old.

    27 Disneyland visitors injured when tree topples | Amarillo.com | Amarillo Globe-News

    I was there the day the tree fell in 2001. I was standing outside of the Golden Horseshoe waiting for the next Billy show. The tree fell right on top of the popcorn stand near the River's edge. The daughter had just asked if she could have some popcorn and I told her no, wait until we are inside the Horseshoe. When the tree fell, instead of asking us to leave the area, castmembers directed us into the Horseshoe to see the Bill Hill show and locked us into the building. I went upstairs to talk to soundman, Bobby Davis and we watched from the balcony while they sawed up the tree very quickly. Frontierland was now closed, so when the show ended, they asked us to leave by the upstairs exit into the store next door. It was decided that the original pepper tree that fell was diseased. They talked about replacing all the pepper trees along the river edge at some point. Trees do fall there occasionally, so I am not surprised.

    I think this was intended to be a joke, however in the litigious society we live in now, I wouldn't be surprised if it was an actual thing.

    Infliction of emotional distress as a basis for a lawsuit is an actual thing. You can sue for suffering just the emotional trauma of witnessing something, but there are elements to such a claim that this would not come close to meeting. For example, if you were traumatized by it because when the tree came down, it split your child's head in half, that would qualify.

    Of course that would qualify, and I am completely aware this is a real thing. I am talking about the situation that occurred on the RoA where no one was injured. I could still see someone trying to sue for emotional distress. It's just the times we live in.
