I forgot to post this video. My wife and I made a brief visit to Blackwater River State Park in May. We were supposed to kayak the river but--believe it on not--the weather was too cold the day we went. So I ended up just doing some hiking and touring of the elevated boardwalk in the park before we found something else to do.

At any rate, the Florida state champion Atlantic white cedar is adjacent to the boardwalk and I shot a video of the tree. They say it's quite old, but not sure how old.

James-   Nice video I went to Blackwater Forest several times while in NW Florida from 2005-2007.  I saw many large Atlantic White Cedar just never measured them. Looking at your video of the champ maybe I should have measured some of them. A really beautiful area and I have often thought of going back.  Larry

We'll go back. We try to head to Florida to go kayaking at least once a year. Blackwater River was high on our list so, and remains so.
