AUSTIN -- Strong winds created some inconvenience Thursday evening on Barton Springs Road.

Winds took down a large pecan tree near Uncle Billy's Brewery & BBQ, just west of Lamar.

Crews worked quickly to remove the tree out of the westbound lanes of Barton Springs Road.

Uncle Billy's posted a statement about the fallen tree on their Facebook page:

"We are incredibly saddened that we've lost our 350-year-old pecan tree. We are incredibly fortunate that no one was injured.

WE ARE OPEN FOR BUSINESS if you want to come pay your last respects to the majestic."
