Buddy's right. Also, if you have someone check them out, you might be able to stop it from spreading to still healthy trees. With a lot of trees, it might be expensive (maybe a discount though, for so many), but it would be cheaper in the long run than medical bills (or worse), and house and car repairs that could result from falling and (in the case of a bad storm) blowing branches. I'm glad no one was hurt.

I, too, am glad none of your children were hurt!

My husband is very proud of posessive of his fancy truck.. One day last summer, exactly 15 min. before he pulled into the driveway for the night, a limb about the size of yours fell from our tree, and onto our driveway.. exactly where his truck would've been.

In that case, look for any tree limbs leaking that black stuff, and send hubby out to start lopping em off! LOL. That will work on ones he can manage, but the bigger ones once you start to see them leaking a lot of that stuff just cordon off the area and wait for it to fall.
Not much else you can do anyway, we asked Guy Sternberg (the tree expert down by Springfield, IL) and are waiting to hear back from him on what you can do, if anything, to stop the spread.
