From chain saw carvings, to plaques, to wooden nickles, people offered their ideas for ways to memorialize the trunk of the Honking Tree.
A couple dozen people gathered Tuesday night at the Community Center in Two Harbors for mayor Randy Bolen's task force meeting, dedicated solely to learning how the community would like to preserve what's left of the tree that had become a Highway 61 icon.
The tree was cut down by persons unknown on April 30.
Bolen said he will continue to accept ideas through Memorial Day, and then will meet with representatives of other governmental units in the area to choose a final memorial plan.
Submissions can be sent to Bolen at firstname.lastname@example.org, or mailed to Bolen at Two Harbors City Hall, 522 1st Ave., Two Harbors, MN 55616.
