Medallion trees. They were begun by an unknown person in the 1920s.  Whoever did it took core samples and then placed a medallion commemorating an event that was as old as the tree. The tradition has continued and there are now 84 known trees. The old medallions were covered by a cap which is why they are in such good shape. This medallion was placed in 1928.

Below is a downloadable PDF file showing the location of all of the trees.
