Heritage trees in Milton Ulladulla
The heritage fig in Milton is a well-known landmark and much loved by locals and visitors and the historic elm outside the Anglican church is also an important part of Milton’s history.
Chinese elm (Ulmus parvifolia)
In the grounds of St Peter and St Paul’s Anglican Church, Princes Highway, Milton.
Planted by Miss Alice Kendall in 1920, daughter of John & Catherine Kendall, who was a missionary at Foochow, China (1908-1942) with the Church Missionary Society. When she was on leave home in Milton in 1920, she planted the seed of the Chinese elm in the church grounds.
Small-leafed Fig (Ficus obliqua)
Mick Ryan Park, Princes Highway Milton.
Believed to be around 180 years old, the fig tree is approximately 10 metres tall and has a massive spread of 38 metres. The tree is in very good health and is listed on the National Register of Big Trees. It is a favourite play area for children with many climbable branches to ground level and hide-and-seek spots around its huge, buttressed trunk.
