Jay I have looked all over the internet to try to find some basic info on trees. I was wanting to find out into about how big a tree gets at the base. Wanting to find out basic averages that a tree grows every year. Wanting the girth of the tree and not the highth of the tree. I had found a place that gave me this once but can no longer find it. Thanks Aaron
