The Leeds Maple (below) on the banks of the Androscoggin River in Leeds is the largest tree in Maine. It is estimated to be over 300 years old. I read about this tree a couple of years ago; I believe it's still alive but was leaning more and more toward a wet ending - in the river.
The Doughnut Tree (below) is another huge Maine Elm that is no longer with us. the "doughnut" was created when the tree was very young.
