Framed Photograph of an Ash Burl Tree

Description (Brief)
This photograph of an ash burl tree is one of forty-nine framed black and white photographic prints bequeathed to the Smithsonian by William F. Bucher of Washington, D.C. Bucher, a cabinetmaker, framed each photograph in wood of the same species as the tree depicted in the print. The photos were displayed in a special exhibition, Our Trees and their Woods at the United States National Museum in 1931.
The tree displayed in the photograph is a fallen ash burl tree, and there are five men and three horses posed behind the downed ash.
