Re: Europe vs. the eastern US - comparing tree heights

Brian,

Nothing wrong to compare the two Cercis spp. Similarly you could say, Abies nordmanniana and A. balsamea are not comparable because the former is a temperate species and the latter a boreal one. It was just a note about differing habitats.

Re: Europe vs. the eastern US - comparing tree heights

Thanks Brian! I updated the tables in the first message of this thread. Some notes: For the tallest Acer pseudoplatanus I accepted Karlheinz' measurement (done with TruPulse 200X) as it is likely more accurate than Sisley's. For Cercis siliquastrum , I accepted the second tallest tree as Spain is ce...

Re: Europe vs. the eastern US - comparing tree heights

Thanks for updates, Brian!

Where you got 42.5m for Acer pseudoplatanus from? I am aware of 41,5 m only.

Could you give the references for these American trees:
Crataegus mollis - 46.3'
Quercus palustris - 136.4'
Carya illinoiensis - 157.5'

Re: World Rucker

Brian, I am not sure but I thought the A. procera was a tan measurement. One reference I found: Van Pelt's book "Forest Giants of the Pacific Coast" says: "A beautiful grew near Harmony Falls, northeast of the mountain, before being destroyed by the 1980 eruption. This grove contaidend an individual...

Cool list! A few notes: The tallest Eucalyptus regnans is now 100.5 m. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-12-12/new-milestone-for-australias-tallest-tree-centurion/10604588 http://www.ents-bbs.org/viewtopic.php?f=50&t=8564 The 99.8-meter Abies procera was not laser-measured -> probably not entirely re...

Re: Asia Rucker

Brian, You must read the same page further. Jess Riddle says: Populus deltoides--161.7' (same AR tree) Prunus serotina--153.3' (Smokies, where else) http://www.ents-bbs.org/viewtopic.php?f=144&t=6106&start=10 As I said you get the European species records from this page: https://www.monumentaltrees....

Re: Asia Rucker

I made such a generic comparison here:

Now the record heights are partly out-dated.

Re: Asia Rucker

Brian, Yes, the European community has grown steadily, though many "older" members have become less active recently. NTS was definitely one of our models. The tallest trees in Europe are exotics. If you are interested, here I extract a "native European rucker": 1. Picea abies 62.7 2. Abies nordmanni...
