The published state record pin oak for Ohio is right down the street
from my home. The dimensions from the ODNR website are:

Circ.188", Ht. 113', Crown 92', Points 324, in Bay Village, Cuyahoga Co.

A link to a photo I took of it several years ago is:

The topography is flat, soils are heavy clay with a shale layer beneath.
Pin oaks are the most predominant tree in the area, with n. red, white,
black, bur, swamp white, and scarlet oaks also found.
