when do you think native americans bent this tree?

well looking at this red oak,looks like storm damage on this tree or something bent it over and it just grew that way. this tree is not over 40 to 50 years old. that would make it about 1950 to 1960 when this tree started growing. to be from the indians it would have to be closer to 180 years old. doubtful on this tree. the indians were taken from gilmer in the 1830's. check out the benchmark in front of the concoco station across from hardee's. this marks the site of fort hetzel, the place they gather the indians before they took them on the forced march on the trail of tears. a shamful part of our history that NOBODY talks about. some of my family was in that forced march. lucky for me there was one indian gal that married a white man and the rest is history.

what do think i was talking about

i believe that pioneers would use an indian's way of marking trails and spring heads by bending trees and stacking rocks. i too have a tree that looks like this tree on my property and it points to a sping head. science tells us how old a tree is, but the hope that we have something special from a time long forgotton is for us to dream about, how much nicer it is to dream.
