A Remarkable eastern cottonwood

Tree Information
Common Name: eastern cottonwood
Scientific name: Populus deltoides
Category: Unique tree
Notes: This is the Cottonwood state champion. Visible from intersection of 661 and 651 (Fauquier County). One of those rare situations when local development (construction of the two roads) actually created an ideal situation for the water loving Cottonwood! I suspect other species were growing in this area in the past but probably died as a result poor drainage after the roads were constructed.
Best time to photograph:
