I'm 58 and I don't remember them not being there. Also interesting, just North of that are the poles stuck in the ground, like someone started a barn but never finished. Been there a long time. I call it "Polehenge"
Remember the traffic getting through St Johns before the bypass on a holiday
I'm pretty sure they're not box elders, I think they are a species of willow.
I know they were there in 1969.......Believe they were a special species of poplar....
Any tree experts around?
special breed of trees planted for elderly dogs that can no longer lift their leg.
Nope. That particular tornado event you are referencing was in 1997, but it stayed north of M-57. I know for a fact that those trees have been like this for at least 30 years.
The police use them as a DUI question if you say those trees are straight your drunk
Those poles is what I first thought of when I read the thread. My buddies late father once commented about them that the barn never did grow around them after they were planted.
I remember those trees as far back as the early-mid 1970s when driving north for the weekend.
The poles do look line a Stonehenge design. Maybe some Wiccans built it.
I remember cause I would be one of the drivers trying to get home.
I remember seeing them in 1978 riding with my parents to drop my sister of at Central in Mt Pleasant. We guessed it was caused by the wind.
Right on, no need to say more.
The box elder is a maple, the only one with compound leaves. The wood is soft, but we all have seen thousands of box elders and they are not bent over like those in the picture. Box elder do grow rapidly and in moist areas but near my family farm willows were planted along the edge of muck fields where mint was grown in the 40s & 50s.
Another vote for a big wind storm many years ago.

I believe those poles were planted in the late 60s or early 70s. At the time I was driving that route a few times a year going to and returning home from college. They would still make great poles for elevated deer blinds.
