In much of my service area, here in the mid-Atlantic region, there are many “old growth” trees. The term old growth is kind of an arborist term. It usually refers to a large stand of trees or even a stand of trees as big as a forest, trees that have remained relatively undisturbed. In this case, what I mean by old growth trees are old and large trees in an urban or suburban landscape. Trees that have been there for a long time and have a rather large trunk radius at chest height.
