Wax-myrtle, Hickory Point Woodlands, MD

An NTS member just recently posted a 0.5' x 29' x13' Wax Myrtle ( Morella cerifera ) from Hickory Point Woodlands in Worcester County, MD. So Yes we do measure shrubs and the more the better. American Forests do require them to be at least 13' tall to be considered for championship status.
