Lone cypress tree in Monterey

Standing on a granite hillside off California's scenic 17-mile drive in Pebble Beach, the Lone Cypress is a western icon, and has been called one of the most photographed trees in North America. The tree is located between Cypress Point Golf Course and the Pebble Beach Golf Links, two of world's most well known golf courses. Possibly as old as 250 years, the cypress has been scarred by fire and held in place with cables for 65 years.[1]

The Monterey Cypress grows naturally only in Pebble Beach and Point Lobos.[1]
