I received this email from a friend and this is what he said.
These pictures were taken during our trip to Oregon in Aug., 1991. This tree is/was the worlds largest Stika Spruce. The “was” being, the tree was destroyed during the storm last week in the NW. The winds were said to be in excess of 100 mph. Ironically, as the sign says, the largest Fir tree about 3 mi. away was destroyed during a severe storm in Nov. 1962.
I hope you can read the sign, however, the circumference: 52’-6”; height 216’; crown spread: 93’; 700 yrs old; multiple 1000 bf of lumber, enough to built 6 two bdrm houses.
