    Metal In Tree Trunk

    The metal is in the tree, at first I dug the ground assuming that is where the metal was, no luck. Used magnet nothing picked up, used pin pointer and found the metal is in the tree itself.

    It is not iron, not sure what the metal is. not sure how to get to it either. Any thoughts would be appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Cindy

    Looks like the tree is scarred where a fence has grown into it.

    Maybe it was hit by a piece of an asteroid?

    Thats what I would say. On my farm there are several trees that have grown around fence posts and barbed wire and your tree looks like it. How are you so sure it isn't iron?

    The reading on my metal detector! It was 34 or 36, I can't remember anymore. Iron is -6 on my machine.

    That is a good possibility since the moonshiners would have been too drunk to figure out how to insert the money inside the tree itself! LOL

    Hey Cdsieg - sometimes barbwire if it is shaped in a small ring like circle will register much higher than iron on a detector - your machine is picking up prob on a ring or circle shape maybe. I had the same thing happen to me about a month ago on an iron wood tree bout 6" in dia - got a dime signal and dug around the tree and finally put my pinpointer on the tree - what ever it was is still there cause I have'nt gone back yet with a saw - I don't know but I certainally have had barbwire shaped in a circle or ring pattern register in the coin area before.

    Since it's not reading iron, maybe it's a bullet. Breezie

    Under the assumption that the tree grew around a fence that is no longer there, maybe you should start checking your surroundings to see why a fence would have been there in the first place. Old home site, perhaps?

    Hey Quicksilver, yeah that picture...well the DESCRIPTION anyway is not right... It is located in Washington state in the US. And there was no US involvement in WW1 until 1917. The boy apparently left it there some time in the 1950s according to the property owner.

    Awesome picture though. I guess, sadly there is nothing left of it.

    I know of one tree with a saw and another with a scythe that are grown in.

    Other possibilities in addition to fencing and staples are: bullets & shot pellets, broadhead/arrow points, screws/spikes for tree-stands or steps for same, chain, tacks for posted signs, aluminum wire for electric fences, insulator brads for running electric to logging/mining/drilling camps, "shiny" objects collected by crows, tips of knives, axes, etc.


    Call a sawmill and ask them what they find in trees. The list is long.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    This reminds me of a funny story.
    When I was about 20, my friend and I were shooting behind my girlfriend's parents' house.
    We had some targets set up and for kicks decided to shoot a tree that hand been knocked over.
    We shot a bunch of 9mm and 22 LR into the tree.
    Well, we forgot about it. About a year later my GF's father cut the tree down and cut it into lengths. Her grandfather was blind and liked to make wooden bowls and platters with a wood lathe.
    Well, you can guess what happened. Luckily the 9mm was cheap copper washed bagged reloaded stuff and had no real copper jacket to speak of and neither did the .22 so the bit from the wood lathe just kinda chunked through it.
    Well for a few years I was the proud owner of a cool varnished pine vase with bullets visible in it.

    I wish I knew what happened to that thing.
