“Here are the tree pictures you requested.  The tree is a little smaller then we first thought.  We had measured it using our arms in the woods, then measured three peoples arms.  The tree does measure 16′ 10″ a truly remarkable specimen.”
Zane Grey
It beats the oak tree in the swamp in Clove Valley by about a foot. This record may stand for a while. Both trees were probably around when we fought the War of Independence.

I’d still like to find one bigger but it seems doubtful.
