    Oak tree from Hitler at Ohio State?

    Hardwood Floors News : Is Oak From Hitler Planted at OSU?

    "a researcher at The Ohio State University hopes to trace the provenance of a campus oak tree that may have been a gift from Hitler, according to National Public Radio."

    Just an odd piece of history from my industry. Thought it was interesting, so I posted.

    Well, we don't call it that, because it causes public relation problems.

    Re: Oak tree from Hitler at Ohio State?

    Was it really a gift from Hitler, or did he give it to the university in exchange for football memorabilia?

    A nazi tree? That sounds about right since connected to the Ohio State University. There's probably one in iowa city too.

    I heard this on my way to work this morning. Pretty interesting. Supposedly they can do DNA testing on trees or something?
