The inspiration for the name of Osage, Inc. comes from the Osage orange tree (Maclura pomifera). Because of a remnant hedgerow that was nearby it was one of the first trees I learned about when I was a boy. I have fond memories of those rough old trees. It’s a very durable plant that served a variety of purposes for settlers and farmers as the Midwest was being populated.
