Julian "Wasp" Mountain lived in this tree for 43 minutes on December 4, 1954. He was protesting the opening of the first Burger King in Miami, Florida. His tree sitting would have been longer, but, a confrontation with a flying insect, wasp, abruptly ended his residency when he fell out of the tree. Besides, it was getting kind of windy and cold up there and he had run out of Pabst Blue Ribbon; his only source of hydration.
(Absolutely no truth to the above story except that Burger King did open their first store on the stated date.)
