Can you find a bigger tree?

DASSEL, MN – This old cottonwood tree is growing on the Woodridge Farm, home of Lowell and Lorane Peterson, located six miles south of Dassel near Lake Jennie. The Petersons, along with their neighbor, Codee Muckenhirn, are dwarfed by the massiveness of this tree and are pictured beneath the behemoth’s branches. Matt Huseby, a forester for the State of Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, measured the tree and found it to be 85 feet high, with a circumference of 15 feet one inch, and a diameter of four feet nine inches.
