Re: Ricketts Glen State Park Rucker Index

Rick, Heavy work Bro. And to further add to the accuracy contingent, I hope that these locations, (especially the highest trees) can be revisited for some tape dropping and volume measurement (even those understory trees that so often get overlooked!). There is a real diversity in our forests here, ...

Re: Rickett's Glen.

John, One more thing. The second to last photo you have posted there is the large co-dominant leadered hemlock on the right side of the beginning of the Falls Trail. I measured that tree at 12'5" CBH. It's the ONLY large co-dominant leadered hemlock I've seen so far, and by far one of the bigge...

Re: Rickett's Glen.

John, Great information. What area of the park were you in? It looks like the most southern end of the park off the evergreen trail, and I know there are some monster hemlocks and pines that I've seen in that area as well. Awesome. I live a half hour from the park so I'll be scouring it all winter l...

Rickett's Glen.

Greetings. Over the past month I've been exploring Rickett's Glen State Park, with a focus so far on the southern portion of the park to include the bottom portion of the Falls Trail, Maple Spring Run and Shingle Cabin Brook. Largest Hemlock CBH: 12'5" (2 feet off one of the most popular trails...

Re: Hemlocks will be treated

Bob, Awesome research. Your forest reminds me much of Rickett's Glen, except for the massive white pine. I wish my posts would show up. It's great to hear that treatment is starting. Can't wait to see those trees up around 150'. Will, You need to get a new vehicle for treatments. I'm thinking someth...

Re: Delta National Forest Part I Sweetgum Natural Research A

Sweet land Lar! High canopy and it's really amazing to see those large girths. Was it 103' on one of those crown spreads!? Sick!

Re: White Oak. Double or Single?

Will, That's where crown mapping will have it's place as well someday. How cool would it be if you had to submit a official crown map for a champion to be considered. I know, I know, that's crazy right? But, there's so much character you don't see in the circumference, crown spread and height. I und...

Re: White Oak. Double or Single?

This tree is on our county's big tree list (pabigtrees.com). It's a white oak. In 2008 it was measured as such: cbh 185 height 99 spread(max) 97 I measured it today and found: cbh 193 spread(max) 99.5 Still have to climb for tape drop. I have a feeling that the height wasn't right in the last measur...
