Tree Measurement, Lostwithiel, Cornwall. May 1992
Restormel Council officer, Stan Burstow, measuring Lostwithiel's Tulip Tree, situated at the bottom of Tanhouse Road. It was thought to be the tallest in Britain however at 88ft it was compared with a specimen at Stourhead, Wiltshire, which was 30ft taller. It's owner, Dr Robin McCurdie, unfortunately had the tree felled a couple of years later because stability concerns meant he could not obtain insurance for any damage caused if the tree fell.
