7321 N. 58th Drive in Historic Catlin Court. The tree is estimated to be 75 years old. In years past, the circus would arrive in Glendale and set up camp close to Catlin Court. One year, two of the elephants escaped, they were found rubbing their backs against the trunk and enjoying the shade. Thus, the tree came to be nicknamed the ‘Elephant Tree.’ Height: 100+ feet, Canopy: 63 feet, Circumference: 13 feet.
