A fallen limb from a large and ancient sycamore tree recently damaged several cars in the JSerra Catholic High School parking lot, necessitating the tree’s removal by the City of San Juan Capistrano.
The tree—which is said to be over 200 years old—reportedly fell in the JSerra parking lot last Tuesday on Jan. 25. No one was injured from the fall.
An arborist sent by the city to inspect the tree determined it was not structurally sound and at risk of complete failure due to damage that occurred when the limb was shed. The tree was then removed due to safety concerns.
