Tree 112

The 1675 Grove is one of the most magnificent old growth eastern white pine groves in the Adirondacks, and perhaps the world. The trees of this grove germinated somewhere around the year 1675 as determined by tree ring counts of fallen trunks. This is “Tree 112”. Note the recent lightning strike high up on the trunk. Perhaps someone has a more noble, less researchie name to suggest for this awe-inspiring tree?
