A BRANCH from a fig tree damaged a garbage truck at Toronto yesterday.
Lake Macquarie City Council officers assessed the health and stability of the trees on The Boulevarde yesterday after the truck clipped one of the trees about 6.30am.
The large branch fell onto the truck, damaging a section behind the cabin.
The driver and two passengers were unharmed.
A council spokeswoman said no problems were discovered with the figs.
Lake Macquarie City Council operations director Amanda Colbey said safety had been the priority following the accident.
