This Is One Big Tree

A few weeks ago I was reading in the Pioneer Press about the program to determine the biggest trees in Minnesota.  The article featured a burr oak in Newport.  That inspired some conversation and we have tried to determine the largest trees in Sherburne County.  We found this one in Santiago that comes close to being big.  I thought I would throw this out to anyone that is reading:  Do you know of any big trees in Sherburne County?  Keep in mind that big, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.  So let me know, where are the big trees around the county?  How do they compare to this one.

As a frame of reference for size, the fence in the background is about six feet tall.  The building with the peaked roof is about nine feet, and the wire spool next to the tree is about three feet high.  So this is a tall tree.

What do you think?
