Fallen Giant

Earlier this week, during a trip to Chipp-A-Waters Park, I discovered this giant Eastern Cottonwood (Populus deltoides) had broken off sometime during the winter.

This was not the biggest Cottonwood in the park, but probably in the top five.  Just how big was this tree?  It's hard to tell without adding something for scale.

Same tree - with 5ft 9inch human being for scale
