OUTDOORS: Catalpa tree hosts tree house, catfish bait

-A A +A

Outdoor Tales

By Phil Junker

Down at the corner of the property grew a large catalpa tree. It was a special tree. It was my favorite tree. It was a special place.

The broad leaves made a huge canopy roof, keeping out the sun and light rain. The tree was very climbable for a youngster like me. About 8 feet off the ground were limbs that easily adapted to a tree house. Well, it wasn’t really a tree house. I simply placed several boards on which I could sit and oversee my kingdom below. I could peer out and watch for advancing enemy armies.
