Old Sugar Maple

Post by wrecsvp » Sat Dec 21, 2013 7:32 pm

...again at Ayers Lake NB. This was the largest Acer saccharum I found at the site, 83' tall by 112.75" CBH. Not just a biggie, I love the character on display as well! Showing plenty of old-tree attributes such as: downslope lean (away from photo vantage point), thick wood up high on gnarled and spreading branches, balding bark on south side of a twisted trunk.
