Tree removal to affect traffic on La Gonda Way

Eucalyptus leaning dangerously over Danville roadway, officials say

Drivers in northern Danville may experience traffic delays Thursday as arborists work to remove a rotting tree leaning precariously over La Gonda Way.

"Over the past few days, the tree's lean has become much more pronounced," said Jed Johnson, town maintenance services director. "Our concern is the hazard it presents if it should fall."

An arborist recently examined the eucalyptus tree, located near Hap Magee Ranch Park, and determined it was at risk of falling because of fungal rot and other problems with its root system, according to town officials.

Tree removal, which is set to wrap up on Thursday, will cause a lane closure on La Gonda Way. Traffic control will be in effect through the area.

Residents will be able to access the nearby park and its amenities while crews work to take down the eucalyptus, officials said.
