The Tree Section real estate area is just over one square mile and located west of Sepulveda, north of Manhattan Beach Boulevard, and south of Rosecrans. Interestingly, the Tree Section community was named for its streets–such as Elm, Maple, Laurel and so on–and not for its gorgeous trees.
Most homes for sale in the Tree Section real estate market are single family residences. The majority have a traditional floor plan with the kitchen and seating areas on the main floor and bedrooms upstairs.

In the American Martyrs neighborhood of Tree Section, named for a church and school on 15th Street, homes are generally larger and further apart. These are the only homes in this area with ocean views, and are generally pricier than those in the rest of the Tree Section. The Gas Lamp District actually runs between the Tree Section and the Sand Section, and is named for the picturesque gas-burning lamps that line its streets.

Tree Section Community Amenities
Within easy walking distance of all Tree Section homes are the shops and restaurants of downtown Manhattan Beach, which are alive with activity most evenings. The beach is close and easily accessible, too.
In the Tree Section neighborhood, families can walk down shaded streets to Live Oak Park; a grassy, expansive area with two baseball fields, tennis courts, a dog park, kids’ play area, and a community center.
Another of the Tree Section’s perks is Sand Dune Park, a three-acre park that boasts a unique, 100-foot-tall sand dune. Fitness enthusiasts love to run up its face and kids love to slide down it. Because of its popularity, the city recently instituted a reservation system, so people call ahead to book time on the dune.
Scattered throughout the Tree Section are small parks with pull-up and chin-up bars for people who want to exercise outdoors. Also located in the Tree Section community is a pathway running along Valley Drive called the Green Belt or the "Chip Path," which people can use to jog or walk their dogs without having to worry about vehicle traffic.
