Sticking up in the center of the far hill

I used the stick method in the prior post to get an estimate on this 30 inch red spruce that I have been looking at for 50 years. I found it as a kid and always wondered how high it was as it sticks up above the canopy. I got 103 feet. I was hoping it would be more but 103 feet is reasonable given what is around it. It sure makes those 150 foot oaks, etc. on here sound more impressive. Most trees I see likely don't exceed 70 feet.

There are more pics and video above if anyone wants to look.

It is a neat tree as it is off by itself. It has a old scar on the trunk which may be why it was passed over by loggers. It is on a bank above a trickle so it has had a good water supply. It is funny how it and the hardwoods around it look the same size as they always have, even after 50 years.
