Wow, you got to see the state champion White Oak. Was it easy to find? I have been wanting to get there to see it. Like anything else, who knows when I will get to see it? It has grown some. The New Jersey site has the circumference at 23'3".

Tom,
It was pretty easy to find. The directions on the NJ site are pretty helpful. When I update my google earth map later this month Ill resend it with its location. There was also a Sycamore 22'1" not too far from this tree.

Gosh that is some big stuff. Granted much of it is open grown and not grand bole forest trees, so it's semi-cheating, but even one of those lawn trees is so beyond words fat and tall and spreading it's just beyond belief even for a lawn type tree, stunning!!!! and a couple of those even have some bit of a real bole to them and are crazy big like that White Oak for one, good grief. My gosh southern NJ really is another world in every way from the rocky, cold, glacial terminal moraine up where I live. Wow that is some cool stuff. I will have to take a trip down and see some of those.

Click on image to see its original size
While inspecting recent tree plantings along the turnpike today I came across a monarch. Saw the leaves reaching down to the field edge, looked to see the trunk, found it 40 feet inside the hedge row. What a trunk, easily 66 inches, if not 72 inches diameter! Eight feet up it split into multiple central leaders, each 2 feet in diameter, reaching skyward.
