A corA corkscrew willow tree, a landmark at Port Townsend’s Gateway Park, collapsed Wednesday. A city Public Works Department crew later used straps to stabilize the high-risk portion of the tree that is still standing to reduce the risk of it falling farther into the East Sims Way-Kearney Street intersection. Working with an arborist, “our next step is to further evaluate the tree, on whether or not it can be saved. We will clean up the fallen portion of the tree now that it is stabilized,” Public Works Director Steve King said.  Old age and rot at the tree’s center caused the failure, King added.
