2 landmark trees destroyed in Berkeley
BERKELEY, Calif. - Severe weather destroyed two landmark trees in Berkeley's UC Botanical Garden.
The powerful winds last week caused one of three sections to shear off a 150-foot-tall redwood tree.
Another section of that tree was thrown across the garden into a bamboo grove where a legendary buckeye tree was standing.
The garden's director says both trees will have to be removed.
They both pre-date the garden itself.
The director says the work will take weeks and cost tens of thousands of dollars.
