This tree made it to over 100 feet in height, has a girth of 140 inches(diameter of 4 feet), and may have sprouted from a seed around the time Columbus discovered America. The flat top indicates that in was in the last stage of it's life cycle. It was ,however, killed by insects(adelgids). The tree is located on the headwaters of the Chattooga River in a grove of 20 plus similar giants that are also dead.
