A final settlement is at-hand in the death of a woman killed by a falling tree branch in a San Francisco park last year.

Fifty-year old Kathleen Bolton was killed in April of 2008, after being hit by a large limb that broke off a redwood tree in Stern Grove.

Her family has agreed to a $650,000 settlement with the city, after suing for negligence.

The Board of Supervisors will vote on the proposed settlement at its meeting tomorrow.
