Tree removed after damaging home near Plaza Midwood neighborhood

A tree that fell, damaging a home on Commonwealth Avenue has been completely removed but it will take a while to fix the damage, according to the homeowner.

It took most of the day for crews to clean up the 40-year-old tree. Four women live in the house and the roommate who sleeps in the bedroom where the tree fell ended up not being home at the time.

The other roommates were able to make it out safe.

The homeowner says the women will be able to move back in immediately. Power has been turned back on as the damaged bedroom undergoes construction.
