This giant sugar maple tree is more than 200 years old. A smaller tree than this one was cut down on Hurry Hill in 1997 and it had 180 visible growth rings. The largest living sugar maple has a trunk more than 23 feet around and it is
located in Norwich, CT. This tree is 18 feet around – the largest in the sugarbush. We don’t tap the tree anymore but happily leave it knowing its hollow openings serve as the local wildlife condo!
