Residents evacuated after pine tree crashes down

THE Pines Apartment complex on Kent St, Gladstone is a pine tree short after one pine tree crashed during Tropical Cyclone Marcia and another must be felled as a precautionary measure.

Angie Kulikav was evacuated from her house opposite the complex on Friday night after the first tree fell.

"It was scary because we were sitting in the front room and heard an almighty crash," she said.

"Then we were told to evacuate because the other one looked like it was going to fall as well.

"I have been nervous about those trees for a while anyway."
