MONTICELLO, AR — One day last June, David Walt noticed something washed up against the dock and patio of his house on Pendleton Reservoir near Dumas. Spring and early summer rains had raised the Arkansas River to flood stage, washing large trees and other debris down the river. Now one of those large trees was lodged against Walt’s dock. As the water gradually receded, it revealed a massive tree trunk longer than his 60-foot dock. Walt tied the tree to his dock and became fascinated by the size of his mystery tree.
