November 16, 1903: “Messrs. Carraher, Miller and Dye of the Catalina Novelty Company were rowing past Lover’s Cove (east of Avalon Bay) where they found a large and black stump. They landed to investigate and found it to be the burl of a sourwood tree. It was as hard and heavy as iron. The root was 4 feet in diameter each way. Two stems grow from the root of sourwood, the largest is 4 inches across. This root weighed over 700 lbs.” [Santa Catalina Island 1887-1915 by Catherine Maclean Loud]
