Douglas Fir

Today I measured a personal record breaker for girth on a Douglas Fir, with a circumference at breast height of 21 feet, 8 inches. I actually found the tree along the Big River in Jackson State Demonstration Forest a couple of weeks ago, but finally grabbed the chance to measure it today. It's a glorious old giant, growing along side second generation redwoods.
