Cottonwood is the forgotten wood. It reaches exceptional size at high latitudes.

It's a superb tree, over 20' CBH is impressive for any tree east of the Pacific Northwest giants.

I also measured a very nice cottonwood at Decorah on the Luther campus.  It was only 78 feet tall but 24 foot circumference at BH.  A true single stem beauty.
