Largest tree in the Biberach district
In 2011, the SDW BC launched a competition with the technical and professional participation of the Ochsenhausen Forest Service. The content of this competition was to find the tree with the highest volume in the district. The announcement provided that the owners of the 3 most powerful trees would be awarded a prize. The volume determination, which was the most difficult for the evaluation of the hoped-for applications, could be regulated with the University of Forestry in Rottenburg. The student responsible for this (Uwe Schütz) took over the on-site assessment and the preparation of the final report as his final exam work. For this he received special praise and a corresponding rating from his professor Rainer Wagelaar. He roped into the trees to determine their dimensions.The following 3 winners were determined:1st place: Krumbach oak in the Fürstenwald Ochsenhausen - wood mass 54.37 VFDmR, height 36.4 m, crown diameter 22.70 m, tree circumference 5.81 m, diameter 1.85 m2nd place: Abbesses oak in the Heiligkreuztaler forest - wood mass 52.84 VFDmR, height 34.6 m, crown diameter 23.80 m, tree circumference 5.89 m, diameter 1.87 m3rd place: Plane tree in Warthausen Castle - wood mass 49.90 VFDmR, height 35.7 m, crown diameter 25.80 m, tree circumference 4.92 m, diameter 1.57 mA total of 20 trees were rated.
