"Down trees" for "downed trees".

APRIL 12, 2020

A high wind warning has been issued by the National Weather Service (NWS)
for the Greater Philadelphia region on Monday that could cause widespread
power outages due to *down trees* and power lines.

Reminds me of the old riddle:
Q: How do you get down from a tree?
A: You don't get down from a tree, you get down from a goose.
