Erik,

As far as I know, the following represent species maximums:  Black Birch, Tamarack, Butternut, White Spruce, and Balsam Fir.  Hophornbeam, Jack Pine, and American Basswood are within a few feet, as well as probably a few others.

NTS,

In wrapping up the year's measuring work, I'm posting an up to date version of NY's maximum tree height list, by species.  I've included three lists:  one containing all species measured within the borders of NY State, one containing species native to the region in which the tree was measured (whether growing naturally or planted), and a third containing species growing outside their natural range.  You may notice I've placed White Spruce (Picea glauca) on the exotic list, even though it's native to NY State.  I did this because the measured tree was planted well south of its natural range; the tallest White Spruce growing within its natural range that I've found is 118'+.
