The Monumental plane tree is located in Krasi village at Malia, in the central square of the village. The tree is considered to be over 2,400 years old and is the trademark of the village.
It is not the only perennial plane tree of the village, as there are two more plane trees nearby, but it is the oldest as it is calculated from the perimeter of its trunk which is 14 meters. In 2011 the tree was designated as a Natural Monument and is considered to be one of the 5 largest European trees.
Its branches and dense foliage cover the entire square, offering shade. Very close to the tree there are two springs that run water all year round and explain the existence of the perennial trees.
