Crews continue to remove historic torrey pine

Posted: Updated:

ESCONDIDO (CBS 8) - Clean up crews spent much of Tuesday removing a historic tree in Escondido that came crashing down during a recent wind storm. 

The tree fell in the 500 block of 4th Avenue more than a week ago. The massive Torrey Pine, once considered to be the second largest torrey pine in the state, crushed a more than 100-year-old cottage and fell within feet of two occupied homes. 

No one was injured during the incident. 

Tree trimmers continued chopping at the giant tree, making their way through the 8-foot diameter trunk. There is no word on when removal will be complete.
