Cook Forest Big Tree Extravaganza

April 26-27, 2003


Cook Forest State Park, in conjunction with the Eastern Native Tree Society (ENTS), will held a two-day series of free events open to the public focusing on the old growth forests of Cook Forest and the Eastern United States.  Will Blozan, an arborest, and ENTS President and Co-founder  climbed to the top of the Seneca Pine (169ft high) to confirm its height and trunk dimensions, which is likely the largest E. white pine in Pennsylvania. 

The images below are linked to real media 9 video clips of Will's climbing of the tree.
