Supes OK $650K tree death settlement

The Board of Supervisors approved Tuesday 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.

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.
