A rare section of an Indian ponderosa pine tree was discovered by Plum Creek employee Vic Anderson on Plum Creek land west of Hubbard Reservoir and was delivered and moved into the "Indians of Montana" exhibit in the museum Wednesday.

Hanley helps steer the tree, which measures 12 feet long and 4 feet in diameter, into the Indians of Montana exhibit inside the museum. American Indians, largely in Western Montana and Northern Idaho, considered tree bark to be a food delicacy prior to the arrival of refined sugar to the area in the 1800s.
