Jepson Field Book volume 17 page 100
Description:
Limekiln Creek, Tulare Co. [May 23, 1907][Not relevant to rest of page:]  Cont. from p. 85.  Ft. in. 4  3 5  1 3/4 5  11 7  1 8  1 8  11 9  9 1/4 10  6 1/4 11  1 3/4 11  10 1/4 12  10 13  2  The above tree was at the upper Comstock Mill. They chopped it on three sides, then sawed it on the fourth side and nearly in two before it fell. 84 ft. of the tree was taken and the remainder of the log left on the ground. The butt end of this log        ::::::::: [Limekiln Creek, Tulare Co.] May 23, 1907  was 12 ft. 7 in. in diam. I am over 6 feet in height but could not reach anywhere near the top of it. It is sound and about two feet of it buried in the earth. This tree is a most splendid argument for the theory that Big Trees do not live to be over 2300 or 2400 years. This tree grew rapidly: It stood between two little creeks.  Frank Braun says he has measured Sugar Pine 13 ft. in diam.
