I absolutely agree, just quoting
I wonder if they meant circumference
it looks like a two to three footer in that pic

I went out and measured
average tree 30"
some bigger ones 42"
a few larger, but mostly straight and tall
42 near me has a worrisome crotch in it

Maybe they should had said Circumference?

Good (Thursday, ANZAC Day) morning. Overnight Low was 3.5C and it's presently 'warmed up' to 5.3C. It's calm with light cloud.

A fantastic turn out for the Dawn Ceremony, both in the number of Veterans and civilians attending. Bloody cold, I think that it's the first time I wore gloves, and my toes are still frozen. I'll head back into town for the 1100 wreath laying ceremony later on.

For the first time, as the Parade Commander, the 'sound bloke' wanted me to wear a microphone transmitter so that he would know when I started the parade; "Really?" (I have a very carrying command-voice). Short story is that it didn't work and, yes, they could clearly hear me. ;) Some say that I could be heard from the other side of town.

That's about it, take care all.

Lest we forget.

Good Evening,
Have a great trip! Bet your sister was happy to see you
TBS, yep my sister gave us a great tour of the town !
That sounds unkilely to me too.
TBS, I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a bigger ash tree than 2 to 2 1/2 ft in dia ! Had to cut a few down on the property, but they must be speaking about circumferences IMO !

No way the tree in the pic was 94" in DIAMETER except maybe at the stump.
/edit - more like 40" or 50" DBH max.
For reference the national champion ash tree is 255" in circumference which (if my math is correct) is less than 82" diameter.

3 hour school board meeting by zoom,
definitely put my needle on E
hope you all have a good evening

now i know why this campground is so quiet, there are no people here. Lots of full time rvs but no transients at all. I wonder why

Old man lies in bed with wife sleeping
tree falls down and kills her, knocks him out of bed

one more reason they are called widowmakers

of course you could say that about a tall extension ladder too...

Almost all the trees in these woods are tall and straight, not a lot of arms on them. If they are ash, surprised they are still alive, since most died. There are no neglected trees here.
This place is kept up.
But then I looked up and around and saw a dead branch about 50 feet up on one.

I wonder when they will mandate artificial trees.
