Yet Another Phantasm Location May Soon Vanish

First we lost the Pearson home in 2015.

Then we lost the Fortuneteller's home in 2016.

Now we may be losing the iconic hanging tree location that was briefly seen in Phantasm and more prominently featured in Phantasm Oblivion via Phantasm cutscenes. Located in Agoura Hills, California, this gnarly tree has been threatened for several decades by local area development. It seems the tree may be bulldozed this year or next to make way for a new construction called "The Agoura Village East" project. The sign out front notes that AVE isn't a sure thing yet, but the situation doesn't look too good right now.

Superphan Matt Naylor sent in the following photos from his visit this past week. The tree is now entirely surrounded by protective fencing and impossible to access without jumping the fence. Matt reported seeing police in the vicinity, so he decided not to risk it. For the best - you never know when you'll encounter a demon trooper. You can see more pictures of the hanging tree up close here.
