Storm Takes Toll on Larchmont Trees

Was it a tornado or a fierce storm that tore through the area late Tuesday evening, July 7?

Whatever the weathermen may call it, there’s no denying the strength of the wind that ripped a tall stately tree on Larchmont Avenue right out of the ground.  The violent uprooting pulled up the adjacent sidewalk and smashed the curbstone in front of 8 Woodbine Avenue.   The tree brought down a power line, which was repaired the next morning.  Fortunately, only some flowers were crushed on the front lawn and no one was hurt in the tree’s fall.

When this huge tree went down, the sidewalk came up at Woodbine and Larchmont Avenues.

Larchmont’s Department of Public Works was kept busy all night and into the next day removing downed trees and branches, reported Rick Vetere, DPW manager. One huge branch closed off the westbound lanes of the Boston Post Road.

  • Being an “uprooted” Larchmonter in Los Angeles myself, I miss 1) big old trees and 2) neighborhood news. Great to see the pics. Keep up the great work, LG team!

    Not me! I don’t miss the floods from the brook. As much as I loved growing up in larchmont, living there was a physical struggle at times since floods and downed trees and electrical wires from storms was a big problem. It’s a miracle no one was ever injured. Long Live Larchmont…hail, oh hail, to thee!
