This tree tower was abandoned in 1970.

In his book 'Lookouts of the Karri Country', Dave Evans writes: "Although lacking the height of other lookout trees, it had the advantage of being located on an elevated position on the northern outskirts of the Pemberton township and gave useful service for many years. Even after it was superseded by the Gloucester Tree five years later, it continued to serve as an unmanned point from which an additional bearing could be obtained when poor visibility from other lookout towers prevented an accurate bearing on a particular 'smoke' being taken."

In Nov 2019, MLC reported: Only 25m from the door of Pemberton Forests Department Offices. Felled after several unsuccessful attempts to save it.
