The winds were probably brought on by Christchurch Council as a way to justify lopping listed and protected trees!!!

4.31pm Borough of Poole : We are just clearing up the remains of the fallen tree on the Dorset Way and then we will be able to reopen the road."
Just like to say when I drove past the other way at 2.30pm there were around six blokes standing looking at the tree.
You really mean to tell us it took over TWO HOURS to clear a small fir tree????

And their bore holes (needs no treatment) are full to bursting and will provide water for months even after it stops raining.

Will they reflect this in their prices? Will they hell,
