Leaderboard - Giants of LC

Monday, February 12, 2018

The map above shows the largest trees for each species I have measured so far in Lunenburg County.  Click on the tree icon for more information.  It will be updated as I get new info.

I measure the circumference with a tape measure at breast height.  Single stem trees only.

I know there are bigger ones, can you help me find them?  My email is tom.rogers57@gmail.com


So what's the big deal about giant trees anyway?

To reach 200 or 300 or 400 years of age, you have to have the right stuff.  You were fortunate to miss the axe (or chainsaw) and the growing conditions were pretty good.

But you did it.  

And in these changeable times, you probably have what it takes to survive ... and your off-spring probably have it too.
