The Tallest Trees You’ll Find in New England

New England is full of beautiful forests and some of the tallest trees in the world. People come from all over to see New England foliage and trees because of their size and look. No matter where you are in any of the states in the North East, you’ll find something amazing to look at.

New Hampshire’s Skinny White Pine

The tallest tree you’ll find in New Hampshire is a skinny white pine, which is 166 feet tall and located on a private estate in Claremont. No one is sure who owns the estate, but if you are in the Claremont area, take a look at the white pines. 

The Mighty Tulip of Rhode Island

Tulip trees have large flowers that look like tulips and are related to magnolias. In Rhode Island, a few tulips trees have said to be the tallest in Rhode Island. The one declared as the tallest by the Cranston Herald is located in Warwick and is 126 feet tall. However, the Native Tree Society claims the tallest tree is located in Kingston, RI, and stands 115.7 feet tall.

Vermont’s White Pine

According to Eastern Native Tree Society, Vermont’s tallest tree is a 143.4-foot white pine tree located in Arlington. It’s located in the Fisher-Scott Memorial Pines Natural Area, where trees are safe from development. Vermont is known to take their champion trees very seriously and keeps a record of the tallest trees by town and species. 

Jake Swamp

Jake Swamp is the name of the tallest tree in Massachusetts. It is a 163.2-foot tall white pine tree located in the Trees of Peace Grove in Mohawk Trail State Forest. This tree was discovered by Robert Leverett, who was a big tree hunter. Massachusetts has an array of tall trees, such as another located in the center of Sunderland. It’s a sapling with a 32-foot circumference. 

Unofficial Champion of Maine

With no available reliable heights in Maine, many claim the tallest tree is a chestnut tree. The tallest tree claimed in Maine is a 120-foot white pine in Morrill. Maine does have a registry of tall trees, but even that is considered unreliable. However, Maine can claim the tallest chestnut tree in North America. The tree is 115 feet tall – 20 feet more than its next competitor. With only a dozen chestnut trees left in Maine, these are a special sight to see.

Gold Standard in Connecticut

The most famous tree in Connecticut is located in Simsbury. This is a 104-foot tall Pinchot Sycamore that is over 200 years old. Floodlights shine on it at night, making it a beautiful sight to see. Although it isn’t the tallest, it is the most famous in the state. The tallest tree goes to a 144.6-foot tall white pine in a small forest in West Cornwall.

Why Should I Remove The Dead Tree in My Yard?

Do you have an old tree or two in your backyard? Chances are, it could be dead or on it’s way out. Call in the professionals to take a look. Removing dead trees can have many benefits and save you a lot of trouble in the future. Here are some reason to remove the dead trees off of your property:

Dead Trees Are a Safety Hazard

The safety of your family should be the first reason for removing a dead tree from your yard. Dead and decomposed trees can break or uproot during a storm or high winds. Their core and roots are fragile, and can end up falling on your home, car, or anything else on your property. You want to avoid this happening at all costs. The amount of money you’ll spend on removing the trees will be a lot less than trying to replace your roof.

Falling Trees Could Cost You A Lot of Money

Dead trees can end up costing you more money than they should. If a tree ruins your property during a storm, your insurance will most likely cover repair and removal costs. But, if the tree falls because of negligence, you will likely be paying for the damage. This includes if the tree falls onto your neighbor’s property.

Pests and Insects Love Dead Trees

Deadwood is a preferred habitat for many pests and insects. Some of them use it to live in, and others get nutrients from whatever is growing inside the tunnels or even eat the actual wood. Common deadwood bugs can include:

  • Beetles
  • Hymenoptera
  • Fly larva
  • Mosquitos
  • Bees
  • Wasps

This may not seem like a big deal, but if that tree is close to your home, those pests will make their way to your house and possibly do some damage or start living inside.

Dead Trees Are Eye Sores

 Although looks aren’t typically an urgent reason to remove the tree, removing it because of the look can help out your yard anyways. If you are trying to sell your home, you should have dead trees removed. Dead or dying trees hurt the resale value of a home or property, and the costs of tree removal provide a 100 percent ROI. Plus, the very last thing you’d need when trying to sell your home is a tree falling on the roof and causing damage.
