The 'Spider's Web' tree trunk in a park in Nanning, Guangxi, China

The Witch Tree is an ancient Thuja occidentalis growing on the shore of Lake Superior near Grand Marais.  The tree is held sacred by the Ojibwe, who traditionally leave offerings of tobacco to ensure a safe journey on Lake Superior. Due to its sacred nature and vandalism problems in the past, the tree is considered off limits to visitors unless accompanied by a local Ojibwe band member.
