Alice Keck Park’s Australian Tea Tree in Virtual Reality

Santa Barbara photo of the week by Bill Heller

This beautiful tree is at the corner of Alice Keck Park Memorial Gardens, it’s one of my favorite trees in Santa Barbara. I have no idea how old it is, but you can see on the map of the garden which trees existed before the garden and this is one of them. No surprise, normally when you see Tea Trees they are trimmed to look more like bushes. This guy must have seen some amazing things in his lifetime.

    Waay cool. I’ve never seen that tree in the park. Looks like the gnarly root structure of the morton fig near the bus depot.

    Whoa. In terms of dropping down the rabbit hole, that’s one of you best. I was getting dizzy! And it’s not only a beauty, but it has medicinal value. Google it.
