  1. I was standing maybe 20 feet away and indoors when a flash of lightning must have hit my tree. But…the gouge in the tree is maybe 3 feet from the ground to 7 feet and only about 1″ wide. Was it a minor lightning stike (although it sure got my attention and sounded lik a rifle shot). Do you think the tree is now so compromised as to have to be cut down? It is a green ash that I planted from a sapling in 1987.
