Tub Springs Sugar Pine – Heritage Tree

When settlers crossed on the Applegate Trail, sugar pine trees dominated this landscape. Native Americans had seasonal camps and have purposefully managed the sugar pine, including using a hook-ladder to move up the tiered branches to reach the pine cones. Settlement pressures, needs and practice may have contributed to its decline here. The largest sugar pine in the area is located in the wash across the road from the tubs.

Located at Tub Springs State Wayside, across across the highway about 200 feet from the wayside parking lot
