Sidewalk Closed Due to Hazard in front of the Historic Colusa County Courthouse

No injuries were reported when a tree branch fell in front of the Colusa County Courthouse.

“We believe the branch fell on Sunday, July 12,” said Bob Mazar, Colusa County CAO, “There were no injuries and little damage to a park bench.”

After discovering that the tree may be experiencing health issues, the County took precaution and  has closed off the section of sidewalk in front of the Historic Colusa County Courthouse as it evaluates the health and current condition of the trees.

“Due to the historic significance of the trees, we have contracted a certified arborist to assess the health of the trees so that the county can effectively mitigate or assess the issues properly,” said Mazar.

Once the arborist has completed a health and condition report of the 90’ American Elm trees, a plan will be developed based on the advice given.

Until a plan has been developed or the trees have been cleared of hazard the sidewalk will remain closed.

Although the age of the trees is currently unknown, the Historic Colusa County Courthouse was constructed in 1861 by Architect and Contractor Vincent Brown; the building was later enlarged in 1886. Many post cards depict young American Elm trees in their images.
