A huge black poplar was found in the Gemenc forest. Péter Csejtei stumbled upon a big tree on a photo trip, and posted the photo on Facebook. Gergely Szombathelyi and Adrien Fekete then visited and measured the tree. On Sept. 21, a group of >20 treehunters gathered in Baja, and made a trip to the tree. We measured a girth of 1200 cm, the largest of any tree in Hungary currently. Estimated height: 30-35 m. Estimated age: 100 years. The tree is healthy, and seems to have a merged trunk. Photos in the Sept. 2013 photo gallery.
