Biggest Trees, Oldest Forests

Have you ever wondered just how big or old trees can get? Find out from Fred “The Tree Man” Breglia, who found the biggest tree documented in New York State and many smaller “species champions.” Fred, director of Landis Arboretum, explains his love of trees, gives tips on estimating a tree’s height, talks about the oldest trees (fossilized, in millions of years, and living, in thousands of years) in the state, and shares information on Landis Arboretum. Produced by Brea Barthel for Hudson Mohawk Magazine.
