Tall Freeman maple, OH

Post by Steve Galehouse » Sat Mar 30, 2013 10:00 pm

NTS-
I first reported on this tree in 2011, and returned today to remeasure. The Freeman maple in the Rocky River floodplain now is 135.7' in height, which I think might be one of the tallest recorded maples of any species in the Eastern U.S.

You should name the tree Morgan.

Steve,

NICE!!! One of my favorite "species". Yes, third tallest maple after sugar and red. I am surprised silver hasn't been found that tall yet.
