Though The Covered Wagon was the highest grossing film of 1923, the frontier was not a sight Angelenos wanted in their backyard (see Hancock Park). In an effort to alter perceptions of the ex-grassland we now called Woodland Hills, a 1920’s West Valley developer planted 120,000 trees.  This Pepper Tree stand on Canoga Avenue, south of Ventura Boulevard, is leftover from that effort.  For more about this development’s history, check here: http://www.americassuburb.com/girard_reservoir_in_the_news.html
