This particular tree has been accumulating shoes for at least 20 years. Unlike most Shoe Trees that have shoes hurled into their branches, this one has shoes nailed to its trunk.

I live in Ohio and I'm sorry to tell all those people that were going to visit the shoe tree, the local government had it cut down.
