Did you know that the original statehood tree burned in the BIG fire and they had to replace it with this one? (so I heard tell anyway)

Hmmmmm..... I don't know about that. The big fire (to my knowledge) happened in the year 1900. Arizona didn't become a state (and thereby plant a statehood tree) until 1912. So unless we be talking bout a different fire, I'm thinking the tell you heard was mis-informed.

I'd be interested if anybody has any info on it though?
