Brian,

I have some updates for you.

Jess Riddle measured a Roughleaf Dogwood in AR to 34.3'
I measured a Common Winterberry (Ilex verticillata) in MA to 28'1"

I noticed that in most cases you are listing the top 10 for each genus or closely related genera. Kouta and I measured a Showy Mountain-ash in Ontario to 52.5' which would place it at #8 on your Sorbus list just behind the 56.1' American Mountain-ash.

Looking forward to posting several more that will make your list within the next month! Keep up the great work!

Doug
