I posted under some different headings in the past. I may add those posts when I find them.

I went to check on the loblollies. I didn't hit the top on the two tallest ones. One topped 138' a few years ago. A new find is the tallest known Chinese chestnut. I hadn't noticed it in the past and almost walked right by it yesterday. Fortunately, new sprouts were coming out of the trunk and I noticed the leaves. Three trees grew near one another. The Virginia pines are by the parking lot. They have lost a little height over the years.

Chinese chestnut Castanea mollissima 98.8' 30.11m 80.9' 24.65m
