n 1992, North Ocean Boulevard (State Road A1A) in the Town of Gulf Stream, was designated as a State Historic Scenic Highway to preserve the last remaining Australian Pine Canopy and the original character and beauty of the 1920s A1A in Florida. State Road A1A through Gulf Stream, one of the earliest most scenic highways in Palm Beach County, was officially opened in 1916 in this area. In the 1920s Australian Pines were planted on both sides of the road in south Florida up to the freeze line to act as a windbreak. Being a fast growing species, a canopy over A1A soon developed, adding greatly to the beauty, charm, and character of the area. The canopy has been destroyed with the exception of that remaining in Gulf Stream. Ironically, Australian Pines are now too prolific and are not as welcomed in some areas as they once were. Yet the Town has protected the canopy and has obtained authority from the State to restore it, which is gradually being accomplished.
