Grape vine

Post by Beth » Wed Aug 11, 2010 10:47 am

I was hiking in Germantown Metropark near Germantown, Ohio and I found this grapevine. I didn't have any of my normal measuring equipment with me so I had to use my "hat-tape". The diameter was about 2 "hat-tapes" as seen in the photo. I will post more later as I get through my photos.

My hat is hanging about 4.5 feet up.

Beth,

That sucker is huge!!! The largest grape vine I've very measured was about 27 inches CBH.

Beth,

My guess would be 2 to 2 1/2 ft cbh.
