Old oak in Portola Valley is gone, felled by tree crew
Root rot substantially weakened this old and graceful oak tree near the Historic Schoolhouse at 765 Portola Road. Tree maintenance crews trimmed it on Friday (June 28) to reduce the weight of the crown and took it down in stages this week, with the last 20 feet of the trunk set to come down today (July 3), town officials said.
