    Post your own pictures of impressive specimens here. They don't even need to be particularly large. Just trees you saw that you thought were unique in some way and worth sharing. Tell us where and when.

    I'll start.

    huge tulip tree in Warrenton VA. ca. 2005. For perspective, the first limb is at least 15' up and the tree had a chest height circumference of approximately 24'. Owner said it was measured by the last crew to cut & clean it at nearly 120' a few years before I took this pic.

    Amazing it's still alive after the butchering it's had over the years! On an estate? Warrenton is just down the road from me.

    It was on a large estate just north west of town. It's been a few years and I can't remember it's exact location. Where do you live? I lived in the area for a few years and really miss the trees.

    I'm over in Haymarket. Not sure I have too many pics of big or impressive trees to post, usually I snap pics of the ones that get butchered up! I'll find some.

    Two ash trees, 4m circumference at chest height and 20m tall. The local church
    council want them removed.

    Your climate looks very similar to mine. I will take some pics this weekend, taking down "big Ugly" as we have named it. Been looking at it for years, finally have the motivation to get er' done!

    Man ... I love big pine trees.

    Just realized this was an old thread. Did someone revive it just for me !! Because, I posted a huge one in off-topic the past couple days. Here's a smaller big one to begin.
