Hi, was wondering if anybody knew the location of mature California pepper trees in north Orange County? Thanks in advance
To go see or to go buy?
Not quite in north Orange County, but about 20 miles inland.
I live in Upland, CA at the top of Euclid Ave, a historic street that is lined with hundreds and hundreds of California Peppers. Here is a picture looking north of the top 7 miles of the street with trees that were already large in 1885. The trees continue south from this point for several miles toward Chino.
It's to see
Woodbridge in Irvine has a street (in MIT Great Streets book) called Pinewood that is lined with peppers, one of which took exception to a brand new BMW and cleaved it today. It was quite large and the roots were spongy. The Santa Ana we are experiencing encouraged this. No injuries.
