Great Storm damage to cedar tree in Nymans

This is another view of the large Lebanon Cedar mostly saved from the Great Storm with some of its branches laying on the ground awaiting attention from the garden staff.
Beyond the chairs can be seen the trunk and branches of a very large tree; the species of which I cannot identify.
The Large Version shows another part of the gardens at Nymans with several trees waiting their turn to be disposed of. The force of the wind can be judged by the way in which it snapped a seemingly-healthy truck of the tree on the right.

Great Storm of 1987
The "very large tree" is the Deodar Cedar which was my favourite tree in the whole garden.
