Omaha, Nebraska: The HI Tree (Gone)

Freak tree attractions usually don't stick around long, but this one has its own plaque and bench: a tree spelling "HI," a natural for stand-next-to-it-and-wave snapshots. 2015: Too damaged.

East side of John J. Pershing Drive, about 500 feet north of the I-680 bridge.
August 2015: Damaged, effect ruined

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.
