Re: Central Florida checking in

Good to hear,
[i][/i]
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...

Re: Central Florida checking in

Great to have you aboard. Between the square miles of lawns and big box stores in Florida, there are certainly some fascinating natural areas, and it looks like you have found a good one to focus on. I am hoping you can provide us with some tree measurements, and images of the trees and other native...

Re: PNG specimens growing 30-40m tall at altitude

Actually in the Oak Forests of the Talamanca range in Costa Rica, we get exactly this same thing at the same altitudes, only the trees are over 50 meters tall. Either the author of this piece incorrectly reported the altitudes from the original publication, or the the authors of the original article...

Re: Costa Rica: Guardians of Water: giants hidden in the riv

As Jeremy knows, there is only one elm "Ulmus" species this far South. I will add that there are about 14 oak species here , one quite large Alder Alnus acuminata and a huge Sweet Gum that makes it only as far South as Honduras, and possibly Northern Nicaragua. Also Costa Rica has a few Ma...

Re: Jack and the Corn Stalk

I was also being facetious and half serious. several species of bamboo simply bend over and touch the ground if they reach a certain height. I would guess that a 200' giant bamboo would also do this, thus becoming shorter than the less long 40 meter bamboo, unless it is held in a structure like the ...

Re: Jack and the Corn Stalk

Lucas, Not sure this corn plant is a tree, as it may not even qualify as a woody plant. The bamboo in question, I believe grows on the slope behind our house in Costa Rica, as many non native species have been planed there. The speculation about making taller bamboo seems odd, as the bamboo in quest...

Re: Costa Rica: Guardians of Water: giants hidden in the riv

Jeremy, Let me know when you succeed in getting to the base of that really thick elm. I am almost as interested in the circumference as the height. I really think we have just scratched the surface with this species. Also waiting for info on the huge one at the bottom of the valley that we could see...
