The DNR Division of Forestry is still looking for Gibson County's strangest trees. “Invasion of the Weird Trees” is an online publication that identifies the weirdest trees for each county based on submissions from the public. The publication is updated every four years.
Submissions 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, trees with trunks twisted like a snail shell and trees that resemble giant octopuses.
The forestry division has received dozens of submissions for this year’s update. As the April 30 deadline for submissions approaches, forestry officials want to make sure all weird trees are rounded up.
