What is One Tree Hill?
One Tree Hill is an American TV series produced by Warner Brothers Television, and Tollin/Robbins Productions.
The show follows the lives of high school kids in a quiet town in North Carolina called Tree Hill in which The Ravens, the high school basketball team, is their greatest source of pride. Tree Hill High’s address is 1 Tree Hill.
Another suggested connotation of the title is that "There is only one Tree Hill—and it’s your home" as stated by the character Karen to her son Lucas.
Additional sources suggest the name “One Tree Hill” was taken from a U2 song of the same name. The creator, Mark Schwahn, was listening to ‘U2”s ‘The Joshua Tree’ album. When the song “One Tree Hill” came on, he decided to make it the title. (The song itself is named after One Tree Hill, a volcanic cone in the city of Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city.)
The series first aired on the September 23, 2003, and the 9th season finale aired on April 4, 2012; the 13 episode season was also the final season for the series.
Fans had hoped that a few more episodes might be made after CW President Mark Pedowitz announced the shortened season plan, however the thirteenth episode did end the series.
