This weekend’s sunny forecast in Berkeley makes recent storms and rain feel like a distant memory. But some of the impacts from the weather remain, including downed trees around town.

Noah Whiteman said a 100-foot-tall blue gum tree (above) fell onto his car Monday at 8:20 a.m., and “completely destroyed it.” Fortunately, he added, there were no injuries.

The Berkeley Fire Department shared photographs of that same tree.

Tree removal experts described this fallen oak as “massive.” It fell in a residential area near Indian Rock park. “We are lucky it missed the houses and only took out a chicken-less coop,” said Molly Barnes, who shared this photo.
