The Treasure Map (Maths) - Holiday Homework!

Captain Black-heart buries his treasure but loses his treasure map! But all is not lost. His trusty crew remember different bits of the map.

"I remember drawing it with 5 squares each way", says the Captain. "There was a row of three trees running due East from the square (1,1)", Peg Leg Pete says. "You put each one of them on a different square." "Weren’t there four granite boulders going due South from (5,5)?" John asks. "I think you put one of them each in a square too." "Ah!. Now I remember!" yells the Captain. "I buried the treasure halfway between the first rock and the most western tree!"Where is the treasure?
