A READER sent these photos of huge tree branches blocking a pathway in Madeley prior to Christmas.

One branch fell from the Brachychiton acerifolius, commonly known as the Illawarra flame tree, on December 19 and was followed by two more the next day, near the corner of Kingsway and Lilac Hill Vista.

City of Wanneroo assets director Harminder Singh said they did not know what brought down the branches but after their removal, the tree had been inspected and was found to be in a satisfactory condition.
