The only problem with the article is that the picture is of Michael, not me.

You can see it in Forest Giants , and it snapped off at about 30-40' up. No living branches are on the remaini...

Re: Alex Hole Incense Cedar

Stefan,

The only thing that I have knowledge of is that it is a fusion, according to BVP. I found this out from Frank Callahan. It still sounds like an incredible tree nonetheless.

Re: Big Trees from a small county

And more big trees, right across the road from where I live. The photo is of a 5.53' DBH Ponderosa, which is the largest in the grove:

I'm guessing on the order of 600-700 years, maybe more. It is also in good health. It is possible that if it retains the current good health it is in, th...
