Hillcrest residents save 100-year-old tree from removal

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (CBS 8) - An old tree is getting a new lease on life thanks to residents in Hillcrest.

This 100-year old Australian eucalyptus at Richmond and Pennsylvania was in danger of being cut down because of a street improvement project.

But the community spoke out, and as a result, the city will rework its design so the tree can stay put.

The new design calls for the sidewalk to bulb out into the street, so the tree's roots won't damage the new surface.
