Where is the tree of One Tree Hill?

One tree Hill

There are many trees that stand on One Tree Hill road today. Unfortunately, we don’t know if one of them is the namesake tree, or whether that tree has survived at all.

Here’s how it looked like in a picture from the Straits Times on March 8, 1936. The caption reads: “This is one of the few original jungle trees which survive in the suburbs of Singapore. It is also the tree which gives One Tree Hill its name. Its height can be judged from the rubber trees growing around it. The property known as One Tree Hill, off Grange Road, has been owned by Guthrie and Co. for many years.”
