Weekend storm fells second huge oak at SRJC

Saturday’s storm felled another of the old oaks out in front of Santa Rosa Junior College the afternoon of Feb. 8.

Near the Hyde Park garden north of Burbank Memorial Auditorium, the oak fell away from the building and also missed the platform that regularly hosts SRJC graduations, outdoor concerts, classes and events.

The oak has been cleared already, but beforehand several pathways were closed until the debris was cleared.

This is the second SRJC oak tree to fall recently. The first fell Nov. 21 in front of the campus sign, also during a storm.
