A FREAK OF NATURE,
Double Ash Tree That Crows c.t
Wayncsvillc, Ohio.
A curlcus freak of nature, in the
'lape of a double ash tree, is now to
be seen at W.aynesville, Ohio. Our
illustration is based upon a. photic
g" raph of the tree, and it will be seen
that the doubling is very'syinmetrical.
It results from the coalescing or two
t separate ash. trees five.feet apart, at
ai.height of 15 feet from the ground.
' Tihe trrliks are 'from 15 to 18 inches
