Big Red

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Big Red, LaPine State Park (bobcat)


"Big Red" is an 8 ½-foot diameter, 29 feet in circumference, 500-year-old ponderosa pine which resides in LaPine State Park. Big Red is officially recognized as the largest ponderosa pine of the nominate subspecies in the world although there is a Pacific ponderosa, a different subspecies, in California which is bigger. Big Red weighs in at 532 points using American Forests Big Tree Formula even though it lost part of its crown to winter storms.
