In 1876, a visiting sailor presented the seedling of this Moreton Bay Fig Tree to a little girl who planted it at 201 State Street. When the girl moved away a year later, her friend Adeline Crabb relocated the sapling to the location before you.

This Australian immigrant tree has grown to one of the largest Moreton Bay Fig trees in North America. It has been designated a City Landmark and placed on the California Register of Big Trees. In July 1997 the circumference of the tree at 4-1/2 feet above ground was 41-1/2 feet. The average crown spread was 176 feet, and the total height was 80 feet.
