Crabtree is an unincorporated community in Linn County, Oregon, United States. Although it is unincorporated, it has a post office with a ZIP code of 97335.[1] Crabtree lies off Oregon Route 226 10 miles east of Albany.

The town received its name when the Southern Pacific Railroad came there.[2] Crabtree Creek and Crabtree Lake in Linn County were named for pioneer John J. Crabtree, a native of Virginia, who arrived in the Oregon Country in 1845.[2] He wintered in the Tualatin Plains, then bought the William Packwood Donation Land Claim east of the forks of the Santiam River in the spring in 1846.[2] The station and community were named for John Crabtree's cousin Fletcher Crabtree.[2]
