River Gorge, GA

I was hired to treat some hemlocks with HWA in the Upper
watershed. Although the upper portion is in NC, to get there I
drive through Georgia up the incredible Tallulah River Gorge,
traversed by a forest service road. Super nice white pines grow
the three that I measured are just a tease of the "super
trees" that surely
grow there. Jess, have you measured any trees u there?
~12'+ X 152.9' Across
the river. An immense tree that may be
closer to 13'.
~11'+ X 153' Across
the river. MASSIVE crown.
10'2" X 161.3'
~11' X 161.9' Across
For some reason, the huge pines were always on the other side of
HWA was heavy and declining trees were common. Hemlock did not
reach heights over 120'.
