    These Trees Have Secret Native American Codes. Their Meaning? Brilliant!

    These Trees Have Secret Native American Codes. Their Meaning? Brilliant!

    Have you ever been walking through the woods and noticed an oddly shaped tree? If you’re like me, chances are you probably didn’t give it any thought and simply continued on your way.
    But once you learn about about Dennis Downes, I guarantee you’ll never look at trees the same way again!
    For nearly 30 years, Dennis has been touring America’s countryside, searching for and documenting unique trees. He’s even built a special society around them!
    But these trees, totally inconspicuous save for their strange shapes, have a very special place in America’s history — and serve a fascinating purpose! Over 100 years ago, these trees were purposefully bent, and their odd shapes communicate very important messages.
    But these trees aren’t as rare as you might think! They can actually be found all around the country — perhaps even in your own backyard! (For a special tutorial on how to spot these amazing trees, be sure to watch Dennis’ video at the bottom!)
    Have you ever seen anything like this? I certainly hadn’t! But I’ll be on the lookout next time I’m taking a walk through the woods!

    Before roads and cars, before electricity and the internet, all we had to depend upon was nature.

    Over 400 years ago, before European settlers ever reached these shores, thriving tribes of Native Americans lived upon the land.

    In order to live and work efficiently, these tribes needed a way to navigate their land and communicate with one another.
