I haven't been to the back of Dad's property in a while but I think this tree is still standing.
We found it when Dad had first bought the property.
I remember Brett and I fighting off a Red Winged blackbird that had nested in the tall grass and then venturing across the creek to find this tree.
It was hollow in at least two places in its trunk but in one fork in particular it was split open. We said if it ever feel over we could easily make a canoe out of it and thus the name "Canoe Tree" stuck.
I can't tell who is all in the tree. I see Brett for sure but not sure on who anyone else is.
