Re: Historic tree "The Senator" catches fire and collapses

I was so sad to turn the TV on to breaking news of the Senator was on fire. My dad took me to see this tree as a child and I have taken my children. I hope they find out what happened. It hasn't stormed here in some time and there is a lighting rod on the top of it I am so glad that I had the opport...

Re: Live Oak Tree, Christmas, FL

Just to let you know yesterday the top of my oak came crashing down. It was water logged. We have had about 6" of rain in the last two days. I will post some pics soon. My husband is going to clean it up this weekend and I will count the rings if possible.

Re: St Andrews State Park.

Love the pics. The bugs here in Florida are very bad. Next time you come get a thermocell. I use to work for Florida Fish and Game and worked outside day and night. The thermocell was your best bet against bugs. I still use it when I go camping.

Re: The Senator

Thank you for the information. I love this tree my dad use to take me here when I was a kid. I would love to start measuring trees around me. I read how on the ENTS website how to do it I just need the right tools. I was going to school for my Biology degree when my 2nd son came along and had to tak...

The Senator

I took my boys to Wekiva Springs yesterday and stopped by the Big Tree Park. If you ever get a chance to visit Central Florida there is a 3,500 year old bald cypress tree there called the Senator. Indian used to use this as a landmark.

Re: The Lichgate Oak, Tallahassee, FL

I love the tree. It is so great what you are doing. One day I would love to travel and see the big trees. When my kids get older I may do that. Until then your photos give me a chance to see them. Thanks

Re: Live Oak Tree

I live in Christmas Florida. It is a small town between Titusville and Orlando. It is a good place to live because you are close to the attractions and can watch the shuttle from your yard. There are many oaks out here and lots of undeveloped area to explore. There is one oak I want to stop and meas...
