Re-measure of Tall Sugar Pine

Re-measure of the Tall Sugar Pine near Tiller


(A personal accounting by Steve Colburn, Director of Sales, North America for Laser Technology)

I had the opportunity to meet up with Michael Taylor this winter, coordinator of the National Register of Big Trees for California and discoverer of many of the world’s Tallest Trees. He drove up from Northern California to join me across the border in Canyonville, OR.
