In 1941, the Native Daughters and Native Sons of the Golden West planted a Redwood Tree within the boundaries of the former Mather Air Force Base. Redevelopment of the base has necessitated the removal of this tree.

This Redwood Tree is planted and its stone marker rededicated on behalf of the Native Daughters and Native Sons of the Golden West in honor of the pioneers of aviation.
