Serial 003 STAR PINE located in Rotary Plaza was designated a Heritage Tree on 3 April 2008. This Araucaria Heterophylla is native to Norfolk Island in the SW Pacific and was transplanted to this location by Supt. Bandel in 1936. The project was funded by the Coronado Rotarians and has since served as the City's living Christmas tree. Star pines can grow to 100 feet in height.
