“This is one Big Fig.”
Reviewed 4 April 2012

You'll love it. A giant tree that almost met its demise, but for some wise individuals. The kids will love clambering around under it. A great landmark.

“Tree is very lonely now since the highway re-routed”
Reviewed 30 March 2012

This Australian tree used to be the center of attention and the pride of Santa Barbara when the streets were different. Families with kids visited often - I played on it as a child. But now it's too close to the highway fumes and is a dangerous area after dark. The tree needs a hug and some attention from the city leaders!!!!!

Reviewed 1 March 2012

The tree is really beautiful just by the freeway. Notice the enormous roots.

“Worth a look-see.”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

This was the residential address for many homeless when I lived in Santa Barbara. The (Australian) tree itself is spectacular, and the surrounding area looks cleaner than it did years ago.

“If trees could talk”
Reviewed 16 February 2012

This tree has been standing for so many generations. If only trees could talk. If you listen carefully, it seems like this one just may.
