A LARGE gum tree is blocking almost two lanes of traffic near Elphinstone.
It is located along the Calder Highway between Pollards Road and Finnings Road.
The tree has come down due to the high winds whipping through Victoria today.
An SES spokesman said Drivers should try to remain clear of the tree and be careful of other traffic.
"If you are going to offer assistance make sure you park well off the road and are mindful of the traffic," he said.
SES are also currently covering a number of jobs between Castlemaine, Woodend and Gisborne.
Earlier SES Victoria also advised there is a tree down over the road in Fosterville.
The tree is blocking the Axedale-Goornong Road near the gold mine turnoff.
Drivers are advised to avoid roads with obstructions where possible until it has been cleared.
