Coast Douglas-fir on the grounds of Cragside House

This page contains specific information about coast Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) '8700', which can be found on the grounds of Cragside House in Rothbury (county of Northumberland).

57 metres, measured by laser by Derick Holdsworth in 2002

RedRob reports, took extra meticulous care with this tree as it visibly looked the tallest on his visit last year. A consistant 60.6-61 metres taken from three baselines, two in the lower pinetum, one on the path leaving the pinetum towards the house. Through the laser viewfinder, the tree had a narrow leading shoot which was fairly difficult to get a hit on and lead to many no readings. On pushes to hit the apex shoot 61 metres readings were recorded but RedRob cannot be absolutely sure that that was the terminal apex point reading.

Girth growth rate

The girth was measured more than once:

The growth rate shown in the table shows the yearly average increase in girth since the last measurement. This value only gives an indication of the growth rate, since every measurement could be done at slightly different heights and during different periods of the year.
