Good shot. It looks like a very easy tree to get to. Definitely one of the trees on my must see list. Thanks for sharing.

Sam & Bob,

I don't see Cottonwoods much here in the NC mountains. Will might be able to shed some light on this?

Hi Sam,
I walk or bicycle through Riverside Park almost everyday. Just wondering which 4 Cottonwood trees you had measured? If the one mentioned by Bob is unusual in size, I would love to see which one it is.

Also, have you walked the paths up the CT river on the west bank? Tons of cottonwood and silver maples...

Michael, these coordinates puts you at the pavilion on the hill, N41 46.441 W7240.026. The trees are down hill from the pavilion heading to the river along the path. You can park between the boat house and pavilion. I have been along both sides of the river walking and biking all the way south. Up until my last time there it was all done before I was "into" trees. I noticed trees before but never got to measuring them. Sam
