Thanks so much for this article, Sue Dremann! I enjoyed every word about our very own landmark tree. I am very happy this tree is being cared for in such a professional manner. 1073 years! Wouldn't it be wonderful to have a time machine and follow its history?

Can someone please explain where it is?

El Palo Alto is on the Palo Alto bank of San Francisquito Creek--and adjacent to the railroad tracks where they cross from Palo Alto into Menlo Park.
When anyone crosses over those rails at the Palo Alto Ave. crossing (where Alma St ends in PA), coming from or going to El Camino Real, El Palo Alto is clearly seen, toward the direction of MPk. The tree sits in El Palo Alto Park, which is on the Bay side of the tracks, between the tracks and a bend in the creek channel and the intersection of Alma St with Palo Alto Ave. The tree is roughly 200 feet NW of that intersection.
