Residents in Colney Hatch Lane, Haringey, pulled together to saw up and remove part of a tree that had fallen into the road.
Photos showed the tree blocking the majority of the road, with vehicles having to drive up onto the pavement to get around it.
It was reported to have fallen at around 1pm in the afternoon on February 6, and was largely chopped up by 3pm. However, much of it remained sticking out into part of the road, posing a potential hazard for passing traffic.
A nearby resident, Jenny Poirier, told the Ham&High that upon seeing the fallen tree, a few locals decided to attempt to cut it up with saws.
She said: “Luckily the bus drivers helped each other and stopped traffic while the residents are cutting what they can of the tree.”
Following a team effort, the residents were able to saw the tree into pieces and place it to the side of the road.
Jenny commended those involved for doing a “great job”.
