Identifier: MR/0509
Historical Reg No: 293dd
Tree Type: Single
Registered By: Elwood-Smith, A.
Registration Category: Notable tree/s – Local interest
General Notes:
The last of four trees that were once recorded here (MDC 2016).

An early Marlburian, Mr Justice Allan, built the home on this property in 1896 but never lived in it. The Robinson Family were the later owners and Mrs. Robinson, now aged 90, remembers the trees were quite large when she was a young girl. Two Redwoods were also on the property and the stumps can still be seen on an aerial photograph taken in the 1940's' (Elwood-Smith 1992).
