Original Post: A Humboldt-sized tree has fallen across Highway 101 near mile post 111 at Big Lagoon. 

A couple LoCO readers have noted that smaller cars have been able to drive under the trunk after someone chainsawed off some branches. 

No word yet on when the roadway will be open. Updates from CHP below.
