Lonesome Hickory – Heritage Tree

Mary Louisa Black planted this shagbark hickory near her home in 1866 from nuts she carried from Missouri on the Oregon Trail in 1865. Of the nuts she planted, two grew into trees. This tree is the lone survivor of the snow, summer heat and Rogue River flooding and the only shagbark hickory in the area.

Located one mile south of Shady Cove, approximately 50 feet east of Oregon Highway 62 (near MP 18).
