Trolley stop 21.

We went by this tree on the trolley tour 3 different times & the driver never did STOP. He did slow down so we could take pictures.

This tree is in the parking lot of a motel. It's 600 years old!

This is one of the stop locations for the Old Town Trolley tour. The tree is over 650 years old. It was tested and authenticated by one of the colleges.

The tree is very big and beautiful and is a very nice specimen. It covers the three B’s Big, Bold and Beautiful. It gives us oxygen and is a very nice tree. Did I mention it was a tree and beautiful? If you want to see this tree, don’t you worry, the trolleys will show it to you! It oxygen tastes very classy, smells nice, and allows me to live. Better than a palm tree. I would give this tree a 10/10 it’s a beautiful tree.

Great to see while passing by on a trolly tour. Would not go see on my own.
Centered closely to many other attractions. Historical.

It’s a big tree. It’s located in the parking lot of a cheap motel. There is no signage to indicate why it is important. I guess it’s old and has some significance relating to the founding of St. Augustine, as the Fountain of Youth Park where this occurred is just up the street.

This is one of those things that adds culture and uniqueness to the tours through St. Augustine. Yes, it’s just a tree but it has also got a cool backstory. It’s unique as it has a palm tree growing through the center of it and it’s heart shaped. It’s also over 650 years old. Legend has it if you kiss someone under the tree, you’ll be with them forever.

This is one of the stops on the on/off trolley tour and they’ll stop under the tree so there is no need to make a special trip here.

Big old tree. Maybe the biggest old tree in the city. Still its a big old tree. I need to use 100 words - still just a big old tree.

What a neat old tree. So big around. Near the Fountain of Youth in the middle of a motel parking lot! Worth a stop then walk to the FofY through the Spanish moss trees

I wanted to love it....especially since I talked my traveling companion into searching for it with me. We drove by it several times and then walked to it and finally realized we were looking at it. It's a lovely tree.....but it's not worth going out of your way to see. It's in the middle of a motel parking lot which I guess takes away from it. Having said that - I didn't hate it and I'm sure if I were staying at the motel, I would enjoy it - but there are many other attractions nearby that are more worthy of my time.
