I grew up just a few doors down from this marker that is mentioned in this article. I must of read the inscription a hundred times as a kid, never totally understanding the true size and incredible distinction this tree held.

hey agnes, the biggest tree i ever had cut was almost 400 years old. it was only 40 inches or so, very tight grain. it went for lumber, i burned the top. i had to cut it ! You know why ? I thought if a liberal said we could not cut old growth i would be angry.liberals and their choice you know. I have also made possible the cutting of old growth, from 200 to 350 years old trees. hundreds of them. all gone ! golly, i love my chain saw ! i am an environmentalist !
