Big Tree Hunter

"He's always looking," says Cagle. "When he and I are together, he'll have the measuring tape with him. In the summer, he goes out on his own on his Harley-Davidson because of the [cost of] gas. He takes M-36 [and] goes into Pinckney and Hamburg. But he's always looking, and he's ID'd trees even in the dead of winter from the bark."

"In the winter, you can see a farther distance in the woods," explains Pomorski. "Then I get excited, happy." Though he looks every day, he says finding big trees "just takes time. You might not find any for months."

Pomorski looks for big trees in places where a kind of benign neglect may have spared them, particularly old cemeteries and old houses. "He found a Camperdown elm in Plainfield, in the cemetery off M-36," says Cagle. He also checks parklands for big trees, but Pomorski finds "most are on private property. I would say probably eighty percent."
