|Perhaps one of Yorba Linda's oldest CA Pepper trees|
I have some sentimental attachment to this old Pepper. I can remember when I first started dating my wife and seeing this big tree in her front yard. I do believe we walked down and sat under it a few times :-). I would have been about 17 at the time, which means 40 years ago (yikes!). Even back then, the tree looked huge and full-grown. Makes me think this tree is probably a good 100 years old.
This old tree's seen many,many changes over the last 100 years in Orange County... incredible changes, from open fields, orange and avacado groves, and dusty roads, to the sprawling metropolis it is today. One thing I love about my mother-in-law's property is it looks amost exactly as it did back in the 50's!
