Serial 003 Star Pine located in Rotary Plaza (intersection of Orange Ave. and Isabella Ave.) – This beauty also serves as the City’s living Christmas tree during the Holiday Season.
These special trees are living monuments to our great city and I had a great time exploring and viewing these glorious members of our community.
