This tree at Devereux Slough in Santa Barbara has been painted thousands of times by a multitude of painters. By some, it has been called "the money tree" because paintings of this tree have sold very well. It used to be a clump of many trees, but 6 months ago several of them died and fell over. Now the remaining trees look like they are dying. The drought has killed so many trees in California. It will be very sad for painters to see the money tree fall down!
