Quercus engelmanii | Arcadia

Arcadia features some of the oldest and largest urban Engelman Oaks to be found in California. Shown above is a large specimen, located adjacent to both sidewalk and street curbing. Given the age of the tree, which can safely be assumed near, or exceeding, 100  years of age, and the vintage of the urban infrastructure surrounding the tree, it's clear this relationship between tree and city has been a stable one for a very long time.
