It took me longer than I anticipated but here is a spreadsheet containing...
  • the 1 known 190'+ tuliptree,
    the ten 180-189' tuliptrees I could find documented,
    twenty three 175-179 footers
    and a handful of 20'+ CBH tuliptrees
I did not include trees that are confirmed dead. Please let me know if you have any additions or if you have details about the Laurel Gap 177 footer or the Cannon Creek 20' CBHers.
