The Pinchot Sycamore, Simsbury, CT USA


Great Grandfather Sycamore - the largest tree in Connecticut.

It’s difficult to get an idea of how large Great Grandfather really is.
This first picture shows the entire tree (I hope).

Great Grandfather close up.

If 10 adults stood at the base and held their arms out and held hands,
they might just be able to reach around the entire base.

When the park was founded in 1946, the circumferance was measured at 23 feet, 7 inches.

Great Grandfather and a little boy.

I don’t know who this boy is, but while I was taking photos,
he came and stood next to the tree so his parents could photograph him. 

I took this picture to show you contrast between the tree’s size and the boy.
My guess is the boy is about 6 or 7 years old. 

Great Grandfather - another close up.

When I sit under this tree, the energy is so powerful that
after 30 minutes I feel drunk and have to leave. 


Use any of these photos to connect with his energy and have a conversation.  You can ask about his life, his perspective on humans, history, trees in general, or whatever you like.  He knows many things about the planet and the “standing ones” – as Native Americans refer to the tree people.
