Strong winds today took down a large tree on Monterey Blvd just east of Congo Street. Fortunately no cars or drivers were injured when it fell shortly after 1pm, Wed Mar 22. An ad hoc group of young men assembled–neighbors and passers-by–to move the trunk so that cars could pass. Another neighbor called 311. Like many of the trees on Monterey planted in the 1970s, it was not in good health.
