What should you do if you encountered a tree down in the roadway?

Don’t attempt to move the tree.  There could be hidden dangers in the tree such as powerlines entangled in the tree or poison oak.  Unstable ground may lead to additional falling trees.  Motorists should leave the area immediately. Make a mental note of where the tree(s) is/are down, and report details to the local authorities as soon as it is safe to do so.
