|My Sycamore Tree|
Currently, the leaves are turning and they are so yellow and brown.
|Leaves are turning|
So from that I deduce from that is must be around the 100 year old mark.
So I went about trying to determine how old my beloved tree is,obviously without cutting it. Google yielded a solution and thanks to Missouri Department of Conservation I was able to determine an approimate age.
- First, determine tree diameter in inches measured at 54 inches above ground level. = 132"
- Remember that diameter equals circumference divided by 3.14 (pi). = 132"/3.14=42.04
- Multiply the diameter in inches by the appropriate growth factor to determine the estimated age of your tree..= Sycamore growth factor is 4, 42.04 x 4 = 168 years...
I am so surprised but so delighted....
