A quiet Sunday afternoon in a leafy street in Figtree ended with a bang when a tree came crashing down onto power lines and cars.
The massive gum tree in Arrow Park on Arrow Avenue was downed by strong winds about noon.
Most of the branches landed on a car travelling south.
One resident said the fallen tree was less than 100 metres from another dead tree in the park that he had complained to council about in recent months.
He was advised to put his concerns in writing.
No one was injured in the incident.
