Tree death to cost city $650k 

A $650,000 settlement in a lawsuit filed by the family of a woman killed in April 2008 when a branch fell from a redwood tree in Stern Grove and crushed her vehicle is being introduced to the Board of Supervisors Tuesday for approval.

The settlement will need to be heard by the Board of Supervisors Rules Committee before the full board can vote on it.

Kathleen Bolton, a San Francisco resident, was loading her car in the grove’s concert meadow parking lot when the branch fell onto the car, crushing it and killing her.
