The Bulbous Pine

A warm day in the Adirondacks. Perfect weather to visit a new friend.

The Bulbous Pine 2
Note the secondary trunk. Growths like these will always bloat the circumference of a tree.

The Bulbous Pine 3
Basal scar on opposite side, perhaps the result of a past forest fire. Wounds like these will also cause “circumference bloating.”

The Bulbous Pine 4
Measuring in at 156.1 inches in circumference (49.7 inches in diameter). The growth form of this pine would be considered non-typical, but absolutely impressive nonetheless!

Photographed and measured today in the McKenzie Mountain Wilderness, Adirondack Park, New York.

Magnificent Cedars
