Took a trip east, found a big tree.  Wife for comparison, no, not your eyes, out of focus.  ;D

It's getting to the point I can't doublecut rounds off with the 25" bar. I have to go in from two sides, then rip it to remove pieces.

A good sized poplar on a nearby farm




This Kentucky coffeetree was only a little smaller than the stump of its champion brother that died a few years before this one started to endanger the house it was beside. Not huge but nice.

I often wonder why there is a large tree in a certain area.  Especially when it is so much larger than the surrounding stand.  I've been in some old stands down around Philly that have had some really big timber, but the whole stand was large timber.

I walked a property with a landowner a number of years ago.  We walked up on a 60" chestnuts oak.  I asked if it was a property corner.  It was.  

Other times the large trees were old fence rows and pasture trees. The pasture was allowed to go back to forest.

I used to climb on that tree when I was a little kid, back in the middle part of the last century. We lived right around the corner on the same block. There was a house on the lot at that time but they tore it down because it was interfering with the tree. Some of the branches extend so far out that they rest on the ground. You can see where one has been cut off in the pic. That branch extended all the way across the street and rested in someone's front yard. They had built a little tower next to the street to help support it. I'm not sure what caused it to finally break unless it took too many hits from delivery trucks.
