Ventura County Landmark No. 3

Across Mission Oaks Boulevard, next to the 101 Freeway, remains part of a grove of Eucalyptus trees that once lined both sides of the old two-lane El Camino Real. In 1892, Adolfo Camarillo planted 650 of these trees, which stretched from Pleasant Valley Road on the east to Las Posas Road on the west. These trees provided a canopy of shade for travelers. This Eucalyptus grove became in identifying highway landmark when entering Camarillo. A number of the original trees still stand. Newer eucalyptus trees have since been planted. Eucalyptus trees were originally brought to Southern California from Australia in the mid-1800's to serve as windbreaks. (Marker Number 3.)
