After posting yesterday’s blog, a reader commented that I should include a standard reference object in order to make it easier to gauge the size of certain trees. Here’s a photo of the really big two-tree Bald cypress specimen I showed you yesterday:


I’ve never done this before though I have seen other vendors do it, so I’m wondering what you think.

The Swamp Pop bottle measures 2.25″ in diameter at the base. The larger of the two trees measures 7″ across 7″ above the soil surface.

Does the bottle help put it into perspective?
