In May of 2011 TFS foresters accompanied Steve Baldwin of the Texas Association of the Deaf (TAD) to salvage some wood that had fallen from the tree.  The wood was sold at auction to raise over $350 for TAD.  Matt Adams of Stormware Creations in Houston has been commissioned to craft Bowie knives from the salvaged wood.   And lastly, some of the deadwood was used as props by Sericia Jackerson, Miss Deaf Austin, who was crowned Miss Deaf Texas following her rendition of “If only the Deaf Smith tree could talk.”
