Moreton Bay Fig Tree (Santa Barbara, CA)


Santa Barbara has North America’s largest Moreton Bay fig tree, planted in 1877 at its current location. Its dimensions are so impressive that it is said that the canopy can shelter 1,000 people. It was somewhat difficult to find the tree, located on the corner of Chapala and Montecito Streets behind the railway station, but once we did, we were astonished with its immense size and spread.
