Erik,

Yes, all height measurements on the Tulip have been of the same leader. It’s easier to hit when the leaves are still on, but nearly impossible with any sort of wind. I tried a few weeks ago and couldn’t do it.

The Cherry isn’t much to look at in terms of symmetry, but I guess it’s beautiful in its own way. You may notice that it’s in a line of cherries coming down the slope. This part of the park seems to have seen some disturbance, and I doubt these trees are much more than 100 years old, if that.
