Big White Ash

This is probably the largest White Ash I saw at the Ayers Lake forest, 102' tall by 115" CBH. It is growing on a slope facing WSW, primarily with other White Ash, Sugar Maple, Yellow Birch, Hemlock and Red Spruce. Its relatively striking appearance may have saved its life: a strip of forest has been cut around it apparently for a road, but even though the Ash is located at the edge of this strip it was spared.
