DNR Looking for Weird Tree Pictures

The DNR Division of Forestry is asking for your help in identifying suspicious-looking trees.

Information about these trees is wanted in connection with the 2012 “Invasion of the Weird Trees” – an online publication that identifies the weirdest trees for each county based on your submissions. The publication is updated every four years.

The trees can be any species and size. The only requirement is that they be weird and be a living tree.

Past entries in “Invasion of the Weird Trees” have included trees that swallowed signs, trees grown together like conjoined twins and trees with trunks twisted like a snail shell.

The submission deadline is April 30th. To submit a tree picture, email your name, address, phone number, and specific location of the tree, including county to scarman@dnr.IN.gov. To enter by mail, submit nonreturnable photographs and the same information to Sam Carman, Division of Forestry, 402 W. Washington St., Rm. W296, Indianapolis, IN 46204.
