miniature golf beech tree

Post by tclikesbigtrees » Fri Aug 19, 2016 4:01 pm

We went to Lancaster County, PA this week. This time out there, I wasn't really looking for any big trees. But If I see any, I take notice. Tuesday night we decided to play miniature golf. We went to one that is right on Route 30. While playing, I noticed a huge Beech, which I think is a European Copper Beech, right there in the miniature golf course. I think it is the biggest beech that I have ever seen. I am surprised that I had not noticed it before, because we have driven by there many times. I am also surprised that nobody has measured it, that I no of. The first picture is that night. The other pictures are from the next day.

Kinda hard to be a snob about your native species when in the presence of a nice european beech isn't it?

Maybe it's plastic--- but seriously, I can't imagine it's a healthy place for any tree- what with its roots being stepped on frequently.
