Story The property where these Austrain Pines still stand was purchased by Soren Peter Henrichsen in 1860 and it has been reported that these pioneer trees were on the property at that time. Mr. Henrichsen ran a plant nursery for many years and planted many of his nursery trees on the corner. There's a total of 13 trees that still remain on the corner, including these two. Since Austrian Pine is not a native to Utah, it is guessed that the trees had to be carried across the plains in the mid-1800's.
