Below are lists of Big Trees as I encountered them walking clockwise, or in one direction, on the routes shown above. eH=eastern hemlock, rS=red spruce, yB=yellow birch, sM=sugar maple, rM=red maple, ash=white ash, MtB=mountain birch. Dbh is the diameter at breast height in inches – the asterisked values were determined by measuring circumference and dividing by pi, others were visually estimated.
All have been entered in iNaturalist; see photos by going to the project Big Trees of Sandy Lake & Environs, zoom in on map to the area above (north of Marsh Lake) and click on a bubble to bring up an individual record. Then click on the species name to bring up the photos.
