This section of a tree trunk is from the tulip poplar that stood near the west front of Monticello. Centuries old, the tree succumbed to old age and disease and was removed in 2008. Although traditionally regarded as a tree from the era of Thomas Jefferson, the absence of solid wood and growth rings prevented a precise determination of the tree's age.


  1. It is. I would estimate the log’s length at 12 feet (probably more) and it’s diameter at 5 feet at it’s widest point.

  2. It must have been a huge tree.

  3. Desgraciadamente, le llegó la hora de desaparecer.

    Feliz fin de semana.
