This page contains specific information about Sitka spruce (Picea sitchensis)
'7019', which can be found close to Lake Quinault Resort
in Lake Quinault (Grays Harbor County)
This tree is called "Quinault Lake Spruce"
. It is the third largest Sitka spruce by volume (298 cubic metres or 10,540 ft3). The measurements are from Van Pelt, R. (2001): Forest Giants of the Pacific Coast. Sitka spruces often start life in the wild on nurse logs, like this one, which results in very large bases. This tree has the largest base of any of the species.
The girth of the tree, measured at a height of 1.37 m, is 16.90 m (year of measurement unknown, "Forest Giants of the Pacific Coast"). Its height is exactly 58.20 m (year of measurement unknown, laser with Sine method (e.g. Nikon Forestry 550 laser rangefinder), "Forest Giants of the Pacific Coast").
