a(11) >= 48, a(12) >= 55.
a(n) is the greatest number k such that there exists a tree with n nodes and integral edge labels such that for each integer 1 <= m <= k, there exists a pair of nodes such that the sum of the edge labels on the path connecting the two nodes equals m.  Charlie Neder, Apr 26 2019
