Huge tree in front of Holy Family Church, Orange, CA

Roots taller than an automobile

Moreton Bay Fig planted in 1875


While driving Mother to take care of arrangements, one stop was at our church, Holy Family in Orange, CA. I had always known there was a huge old tree in front of the rectory, but didn’t know the history of it.

As we exited the rectory, I took a photo of the enormous roots that were taller than an automobile and noticed a plaque explaining that it is a Pioneer Landmark. It is a Moreton Bay Fig Tree that was planted in March 1875. Wow, I didn’t know we had such a historical tree here in town.
