Red Maple, China Township

Hello, I wondered if anyone would be available with a laser and in range locally to measure Ken's Red Maple as discussed above?

Isn't this that tree Will Blozan measured after finding a giant red maple in tenessee? Turned out to be nowhere near as tall as the earlier (tangent) measurements recorded.

From the link:

"As darkness fell I spotted-and swear to return to-two HUGE cottonwoods that
appeared to be over 18' in girth and in excess of 130' tall. These trees
towered and dominated an out-wash terrace of the Lower Huron River. They
will likely be the largest in displacement volume cottonwoods ENTS has
surveyed. These trees are forest-grown and MASSIVE!"

Did Will ever return to these two massive cottonwoods?
