Yes there was. Then in 1970 or 71 we had that big fire that took out the middle tree. In fact that fire made the cover of Life magazine.

Five trees..
by: Anonymous

I was born in 1943, and when I was a kid, there were FIVE trees. They were planted by an early Ventura family to represent their family members.

A Little bit of info from this site... NEW
by: Tim

1898 – The "Tale of Two Trees" begins. The two blue gum eucalyptus trees that overlook the city are beloved landmarks to Venturans as much as any other. One tree is part of a grove of 13 trees originally planted by Joseph Sexton and Owen Marron. By 1940 only five trees remained until vandals chopped down three trees. The trees were replanted bringing the total back to five. In 1956 vandals once again chopped down three trees leaving one original tree and one replacement tree standing. What’s left? Two Trees!
