This is largely an elm tree located about three and a half miles north of Ames, a hundred feet or so from the west bank of the Skunk River. This is actually two trees grown together either by natural phenomenon or as a native American trail marking. The tree has been gone for a number of years, ultimately washed away by frequent flooding of the Skunk River. The tree was on a farm owned by Harry F. Brown, father of Farwell T. Brown. As a boy Farwell fished in the river and recalls that he caught the biggest catfish he ever caught almost under the shade of this tree. At that time people called the odd-looking tree, the "T" tree. The "H" tree is further north.
