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. This was a very informative article, and it brought everything back to me in full circle. Thanks !! Oh, and Steiner, Not EVERYTHING is about Libs and Conservatives. Give it a break for just once will you please..??

hey agnes, i saved one tree as it was 150 feet tall. i thought that it was marvelous and felt good about myself.i almost joined the sierra club . then we had a windstorm and it blew over.i was devastated.almost went for counseling. sure enough, it was 148 feet tall, by tape measure. i used the geometric way of measuring height initially. . I burned the tree up !

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 !
