I'm always on the hunt for the unusual tree. I like to call it my Ent Hunt.

(copied from the cache listing)The cache is located near the largest single stem black cherry in Cook Forest State Park, and was the largest in the PA State Park system. When alive, this forest grown single stem black cherry had a circumference of 13.1ft a crown spread of 61.5ft and a height of 121.7ft for a total of 294 big tree points. This tree could very well have been over 250 years old.

The trees in this floodplain had completely exposed roots which all tangled around each other, like some Lovecraftian horror.

I wasn't hiking, but I found this one while caching. It's called "the indian tree", and it's located on the grounds of the Civic Center in Traverse City, MI. Local legend says it was made by the indians as a pointer or trail marker.

Not a tree, but this saguaro looks just like the one the coyote used to sling shot himself towards the roadrunner.

Found this tree while hiking in Valdosta Ga. Thought it was cool so I left a cache there so others can see it.

Several of these posted, especially the one marked as suck look like they may infact be Indian Trees.

 

It's very cool to stumble across one. We have several here in Central/Northern ohio from the MOhican Indian Tribe. Let me see if I can find some more information on them....

 

Lots of articles on them, too many to post here, but this will get you started.... It's a very interestring read about some of our past history:
