Turbulent Times: Christmas Tree in the Wind Tunnel

Scientists at the FH Aachen have found out that, in order to survive a storm unscathed, a Christmas tree has to be anchored to the ground with a weight of about 10 tons. The necessary measurement data were obtained in the wind tunnel of the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering. A fir tree has a drag coefficient of ca. 0.8 - just about the same as a truck. You can read a detailed report (in German) here.
