In the title compound C22H24O2, the exocyclic C=C double bond is in an E configuration and the tert-butyl group is in an axial position on the cyclo­hexa­none ring. The cyclo­hexa­none ring in the dihydro­naphthalene fused-ring system adopts a half-chair conformation in both independent two mol­ecules in the asymetric unit. The benzene ring system is oriented angles of 43.97 (12) and 39.24 (12)° with respect to the naphthyl ring system in the two independent mol­ecules. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked via C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds and C—H⋯π inter­actions.
