Down at Rock Harbor, a mysterious line of bare trees can be seen in the water from Spring to late Fall. These trees are installed to mark the deepest path for boats coming into the tidal harbor. The trees were nicknamed the 'Clam Trees' after clammers would discard small clams near their bases. The tale was eventually spun that clams in the harbor grew and fell from the trees, giving them their unusual nickname.
