Big Tree

We walked up to this old Hemlock yesterday. There are larger trees out there but this one is pretty big. My woodsman guess-timation has it at just under 100 feet tall with a crown of 54 feet in width. I need to take a 100 foot tape and inclinometer out there to get something more accurate, but I'm pretty close. Been an engineer too long. This one will get the treatment when the adelgids hit it. If(When) we lose all the hemlocks in the gorge it will change everything.
