What's the tallest accurately measured tree in Southern OH?

All,

I'm hoping to raise the bar, but first I want to make sure I know where the bar is.

Thoughts on the tallest accurately measured tree in the southern half of Ohio? The tallest I've measured is a 154.9' Tuliptree in Germantown Metropark. Have there been taller trees measured?

Thanks,
Matt

Tallest I've got is 157' tulip at Old Man's Cave. It's a young, skinny tree so I don't see any reason why there wouldn't be +160' footer out there if you could find a sufficiently undisturbed site.

Matt, Rand-

Has anyone measured the trees in Dysart Woods recently? I think it once had a 160'+ tulip, which has since fallen. It's curious that the tallest sites in Ohio are in the NE section----At least five over 150' and three over 160'; must be primarily due to topography.
