Trees, such as this 300 year old, 100' tall Bur Oak, were often manipulated into unusual shapes by Native Americans as landmarks to identify important trails. The Signal Tree marked the northenmost point of the portage trail that connected the Cuyahoga and Tuscarawas Rivers and still stands in the Casade Valley Metro Park.
