Here the famous LoneCypress stands alone. If you enlarge the image, you will be able to see the lines that keep her stable from the buffeting winds off the Pacific Ocean and the stone wall that protects the root system.
The lone Cypress at Pebble beach is one of the most photographed trees in the world. It grows on an outcropping of rock overlooking the Pacific Ocean. There are lines attached to it to protect it from the winds that blow in from the water. The icon of the Pebble Beach Company for nearly a century, the world-famous sentinel named The Lone Cypress Tree is the only living entity to be trademarked. It is more than 250 years old and well cared for in hopes that it will live at least another 50 years.
