On my way back from a family visit last week I made time to stop and see the Virginia State Champion northern red oak near Manassas, Virginia. The tree is in Bull Run Park and scores a whopping 422 big tree points. Here is a link to the tree: http://www.cnr.vt.edu/4H/BIGTREE/bigtree_detail.cfm?AutofieldforPrimaryKey=978
However, a few issues arose when I got to the tree.
1) It was not a tree but a partial fusion of two separate trees
2) It was 123.9 feet tall, not 148 feet as stated
3) It was not a northern red oak
This fluted double tree grows in a floodplain forest and is in fact, a shumard oak (Quercus shumardii).
