Back when this country consisted of British Colonies trees like this would have been considered property of the king. At that time the British navy ruled the seas and the ships of that era depended on tall straight trees like this for their masts. They'd have had a tough time getting this one though. I can't help but wonder if this tree was there back then, smaller of course. Few humans ventured into this part of the Adirondacks back then, a few natives perhaps. It was only a hunting ground for them and there were no tourists at all.
