NTS,

I remeasured the Huntington Wildlife Forest Tamarack this afternoon. It put on 1' in height and 1" in girth in the last growing season. I also calculated the average crown spread, using the spoke method. Here are the tree's current dimensions:

Height: 130.0'
CBH: 77"
Average crown spread: 30'
AF Champion points: 214

The current NY champion for this species scores 178 points, so I'll likely be nominating this tree. Some photos from today:

Elijah,

Congratulations. I really enjoy your Adirondack discoveries/confirmations. We don't have a RHI on the Dacks as a whole, do we? I think we can do justice to white pine, hemlock, tamarack, red spruce, and a couple of hardwood species. But beyond those, do we have a sufficiently good measure of others to do justice to the region's RHI? I hit 122 on a white ash in the Piseco Lake region years ago. That's my best on hardwoods in the Dacks.

Thanks, Bob.

I just posted a thread containing an up to date RHI on the Adirondacks. If you see any errors, please let me know, and I'll get them corrected.
