Goodbye 103

 

What was generally thought to be the tallest tree in NY State has recently fallen. The 160′ white pine was located in a difficult-to-find area near Paul Smith’s College in the northern Adirondacks. Since its discovery, the group of 350 year old pines has been called the the  Elder’s Grove and the tallest among them was “tree #103.” I was able to visit the tree on two occasions. This was taken in August 2016.
