Workers from the Ojai Public Works Department were busy Monday cutting up the branches of a large live oak tree whose trunk had broken near its base. Located near the intersection of Creek Road and Saddle Lane, the tree fell sometime Saturday morning, according to Public Works Director Greg Grant. “It fell onto private property,” Grant said Tuesday, “and the property owners are interested in keeping most of the wood, so we’re working with them on it. The rest of of the wood will be taken away by the city.”
