Larry,

Great Cherry bark oaks. Impressive heights for flood plain oaks, and a nice pine species I had never heard of. Excuse my ignorance and thanks for this post.

Re: Oaks originated near the Arctic Circle

Kouta,

Interesting. I do remember finding some beautiful, somewhat flattened acorn like seeds on a project in Borneo in the 90's. Perhaps the trees they came from were in one of these genera.

Re: Oaks originated near the Arctic Circle

Larry, In Maarten Kappelle's 2008 book Biodiversity of the Oak Forests of Tropical America , he notes that: "Oak (Quercus) itself originated in the Northern Hemisphere and is therefore a genus that migrated during Pleistocene times, from the cool Northern temperate zone to the tropics in the So...

Re: Codman North conservation area in Lincoln

Looks like these hemlocks are in a ravine and have some competition from closely spaced tall neighbors. I'm guessing that was what Bob was driving at, as the relatively flat conditions in most of Eastern MA allow more storm damage, and less protection from drying out during droughts, than is commonl...

Re: Hello from Massachusetts

Welcome to NTS, Bob laid out the basics, but aside from worthwhile contributions in your drawings, keep in mind that you don't have to be a scientist to measure trees, and there are several NTS members in the state who can teach you an affordable method to do this. Although my wife Connie and I are ...

Re: a Live Oak for Larry to add to his list

Are there any native figs there, or are they all further south, or in different habitats? 3 large ficus species native to Florida are Ficus Americana, F. citrifolia, and F. Auria.

Re: Spackmans Creek Pine, Delaware Water Gap NRA

Talk about humble pie, back in March, I measured a Mexican Elm in Costa Rica. I was with Jeremy Quiros, who had spotted the tree from a bridge. We were in a hurry on our way back from a measuring trip near there, so I hastily wrote down the numbers to do the math later, but when I got back I assumed...
