“money doesn't grow on trees but shoes do”
The shoe tree is on Highway 26, east of Mitchell, OR near mile marker 89. Come by and throw a pair of your own kicks on to this magnificent trees branches and become part of the few whose footwear is proudly displayed.
I just drove this route today and didn't see the tree. When I stopped to ask a local gas station attendant, he informed me that the tree was cut down a year or so ago. There is another tree further east down the road that looks like it will soon be the next shoe tree though!
This fun "shoe" tree is really old and interesting. Nobody knows when it started and why the tossing of pair of shoes is being done. Make sure to bring your old pair of shoes and toss them up into the branches!
We discovered thw sgoe tree in April of 2017. East of Mitchell (on 26), the "new" shoe tree is as full as ever. Just along the road side, visible from either direction, there's room to pull off and hang a pair. Also, a ways down the road (east) there is the beginnings of a bra tree, which i can see quickly becoming an icon as well.
20 miles past fossil, so if not the direction you are going you have to really want to see it!

The tree has not been cut down. It's just further east of Mitchell.
