Visiting the Methuselah Tree on Skyline

Every few years, when Special Collections-Redwood City is hosting a number of summer students and interns, we make a trip to Alice’s Restaurant for lunch to celebrate their accomplishments and contributions. It’s also a way to say thank you to our Redwood City staff for a very productive year. Sadly several staff members were unable to make it at the last minute as jury duty and emergency training took precedence.

This year we followed lunch with a quick visit to the Methuselah Tree on Skyline Blvd, where we took a few photos. These days the tree is “only” 137 feet tall – after the top broke off in 1954; access is generously allowed by the California Water Service Company.
