TWO of Goodna's prized 80-year-old jacaranda trees were blown over in high winds yesterday, with one falling on a passing car.
Goodna councillor Paul Tully said a tree near the Royal Mail Hotel on Brisbane Tce and another on George St were blown over during the morning.
Cr Tully said the tree on Brisbane Tce fell on a passing car, smashing its windscreen.
Council staff were sent out to remove the trees.
"They were both about 80 years old so they have been through three floods - 1955, 1974 and 2011 - so it's no surprise they were on their last legs, especially with the unseasonably high winds today," Cr Tully said.
"The council has a plan to replace the old trees and examine the other old trees to see which need to be removed.
"It won't affect the Jacaranda Festival; there are plenty more trees around Goodna."
The 2012 Goodna Jacaranda Festival is on October 26, 27 and 28 at Evan Marginson Park.
There is no admission fee.
