Ginormous Tree in Simsbury

Pinchot Sycamore 


Yes, "ginormous" really is a word.  And it's really the only word that can accurately describe the Pinchot Sycamore located in Simsbury, touted as the largest tree in the state.  See the tiny red speck to the right of the trunk?  That's a kid!

Located at the intersection of Nod Road and Rte. 185 in Simsbury, it's a great place to have an afternoon picnic.  There is also access to the Farmington River at the site, so you can launch your canoe, kayak, or Labrador Retriever right into the water.  Have fun!

WOW!  That's a big tree!  Any idea how old it is?

No, unfortunately the plaque at the site did not say.  And I'm no arborist, so I can't even venture a guess.
