Osage Orange Trees

—Second of Multiple Plaques —

The Osage orange trees on this site are remnants of a tree row typical
of those which once extended for miles along the edge of farm fields
in Dublin. The Osage orange, or Maclura pomifera, is a member of the
mulberry family, and is native to midwestern North America. Its
common name refers to the Osage Indians of Arkansas and Missouri
who used the dense orange wood to make bows and tomahawks. Early
farmers often planted the Osage orange as fencing along the fields and property
lines because its irregular, thorny branches quickly grew to form a secure
boundary. These hedge rows also provided refuge for birds and small
animals. The fruit of the Osage orange is the size of a softball and
chartreuse green in color with bumpy surface texture like brains. It
is widely known as a natural repellant for roaches, spiders, and other
insects.
