Edisto Mystery Tree – Edisto Island, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Charleston County Photos | Edisto Mystery Tree
Edisto Island‘s Mystery Tree stands about 100 feet off SC 174. Though no one is quite sure who adorns it, the decorations change with the seasons and the tree has become a beloved local landmark.
If you continue further down the road towards the beach, you will come across another mysterious tree. On your right stands a large old oak with a unique swing hanging from its boughs. The swing is made from a stack of old mattresses. As one mattress disintegrates, a new one is added on top of it.

Reflections on the Edisto Island Mystery Tree
Contributor Charleen Mason describes his photo at the top of this page: “The Mystery Tree is decked out for football season. Footballs and pom poms galore! The tin plate-like thing in the middle says ‘Ohio State,’ and there is also a golf tee and ball at the top.”
Contributor Rusty Williams describes his summertime shot, shown in the middle of the page, as follows: “This picture shows the summer theme which includes an American flag, buckets for playing in the sand, and a beach chair.”
