Heaa* (for Hear, Heart, etc.)

If a tree falls in the woods and no one is around to hear it, does it still make a sound? While I can’t answer that age-old question, I can definitely attest to the fact that a toppling tree will make a really loud noise if there are people nearby. Our neighborhood was built in what used to be woods, and one recent windy night, we were quite startled by a large crash next door. Fortunately, there was no loss of life or limb—well, except for the tree itself!

Heaa* is a low-probability typo with only three entries in OhioLINK, so hopefully you won’t find many in your own catalog. And even if you do, at least you won’t need a chain saw to get rid of them.
