Colonel Leopold L. Armant Oak, LA

Post by Larry Tucei » Mon Jan 28, 2013 10:57 pm

NTS, On my way down to Oak Alley I noticed a large Live Oak growing along Hwy 18 in Vacherie Louisiana. This road runs the length of the Mississippi from New Orleans to Baton Rouge. I had enough time on my trip back home to stop and measure this beautiful tree. The grand oak is located at the old Armant sugar Plantation which burned in 1969. The tree measured CBH- 22' 4", Crown Spread- 132' x 120' and Height- 70'. Larry

Larry,

Take a look at the following.

Your measurement was CBH = 22.33 ft, right? The photo measurement at the point shown is 22.47 ft. It can't get much closer than that.

Bob, That is very precise from just a photo of me and the tree. Using my height to determine the CBH of the tree and getting so close to the actual measurement is way cool!!! Great work! Larry
