Ed and all,
I counted the rings on the two trees that blown over in a
storm 9 days
ago. The Eastern Reddbud was about 40-45 tall and had a
7-1/4" at about 2" above ground level with a ring count of 37.
Rough-leafed Dogwood was about 12-15' tall and a diameter of
about 1/2" above ground level with a ring count of 21. Note:
ground levels could be different at the time of measurement
time of start of growth due to house construction. The GPS
coordinates are 38 29.634N and 90 47.657W for both trees as they
within a foot of each other.
