Omaha, Nebraska: The HI Tree

Freak tree attractions usually don't stick around long, but this one has its own plaque and bench: a tree that spells the letters "HI," a natural for stand-next-to-it-and-wave snapshots.

The HI Tree

The "HI" tree is right along the road, and looks like it's experienced some damage so it's now a lowercase "h" but still a good stop!

The HI Tree

This tree is in an area that experienced a great deal of flooding in the summer of 2011. It is still accessible, but the plaque is gone and the bench was destroyed. We parked at the Florence Depot Museum (quarter mile southwest) and walked to the tree.

In the Dodge Park area of Omaha, Nebraska, there is a tree formation which seems to spell the word "HI." It has been recognized as a landmark of sorts, with a plaque and bench nearby.
