This 32″ diameter tree that grew along Marchmont Road came down during a July 2011 storm. Shaker Heights is the original site of the North Union Shaker Village, which was in existence from 1822 thru 1889.
At 140 years old, this tree dates back to 1871, and the final years of the North Union Village.
No.1 thru No.4 boxes are being made from this tree.
This is an unusual tree with thorns on the branches, and also large spine clusters which grow along the trunk. The spine clusters can create an interesting pattern in the grain of the wood.
