about 3x4 inches
 My two favorite trees at the beach, and several smaller ones that are becoming more noticeable.  There is much concern that we will lose the open upper beach meadows if the new  little spruce aren't eliminated.   The land here is rising due to post-glacial rebound (also called either isostatic rebound or crustal rebound)   which is the rise of land masses that were depressed by the huge weight of ice sheets during the last glaciel period, through a process known as isostatic depression.  What use to be beach and tidelands is now high and dry.  Here is an interesting article about the phenomenon in our area.
