Re: Tamassee Knob

I know I am a year late but, Tamassee Knob trail begins in Oconee SP. There are big trees in the park, but I think quite a bit of what Jess has recorded in his reports is just outside the park. Oconee SP is in the Sumter NF. Tyler, what tree is that in your i.d.? It is awesome!

Re: 429 Point American Sycamore Champion

Hey Will, great tree. As every time I respond to anything you post, I offer my climbing services if ever needed (the squeaky wheel philosophy). Was the last champion sycamore ever at the Biltmore house? I was told that it was, and I know there was a massive one there that got blown over when hurrica...

Congrats, Will and everybody! Still jealous as I can be. I live right down the road from you boys and gal, drop a line ...

Re: Question about Watersheds.

I would love to try and get in on this, and I know of a fellow tree climber who would as well. We both work in Greenville, SC and day-dream of the hidden giants we know are lurking in the hills of our horizon. Furthermore, I go to a lake house every year on Lake Sheila in Saluda, NC, that backs righ...

Re: Tamassee Knob

Well, I returned to Tamassee Knob yesterday (Fri. April 30) and it was a beautiful day with little to no wind. As mentioned in an earlier post, the last time I was there, which was last sunday, it was extremely windy and I heard two large falling trees--or at least some major portion of tree. I wond...
