Michael,

It is possible but unlikely. The tree is nearly stagnant in height growth and being hyper-emergent it simply has no need to get significantly taller. The tallest neighboring pine (165') has fallen and most of the dominant hemlocks have now died. Exposure is extreme aside from the topography of where it grows. My hunch is the wounds from the hurricane damage will fail as the reiterated tops grow ever-so-slowly larger. There has been no measurable increase in height since 2008.

It's a shame but that's life - it's tough at the top.
