Brian,

I’ve tried to express words but...you have rewritten the books. I’m five or more years behind in my reports (I’m committed) and have some significant numbers for your report. Mostly for Delaware and Maryland. Hopefully I’ll have significant numbers for DC by the end of next month. I’ll try to report. For now I’ll just put the numbers out here. For specific sites I’ll post for that state. Dam!$*#!!!

George,
Thanks. It has been a labor of love. I'm glad to hear you're still actively measuring. Get the numbers out when you get the chance.

I think there have been later measurements of that white pine in the Delaware River Water Gap. I think it is up to 174 feet. More to come on Massachusetts.
