Eighteenmile Creek Gorge, Erie County

Eighteenmile Creek is one of western New York's Lake Erie Gorges, alongside previously reported on gorges like Zoar Valley and the Chautauqua and Canadaway Creek gorges. Those three are fairly similar to each other in most respects- cutting through hard shales and siltstones miles inland from the la...

Re: Zoar Valley Update

Reviewing the last couple years of updates here and there, I just came to realize that Zoar's RHI10 is exactly 1.5' away from 145. Since the last time the full index was posted here, Tuliptree, Sycamore, Red Oak, White Ash and Basswood have gained height. Cottonwood, White Pine, Hemlock and Black Ch...

Re: NY Rucker Height Index

I'd definitely be interested in participating. I do also tend to have more detailed data on my end than what's reported on the site. I think something special would be a document that goes through NTS height records of each eastern tree species. That's where we've got the most saturation, and where ...

Re: NY Rucker Height Index

Poison sumac you'll most often find in association with wetlands with more calcium, often in areas with limestone bedrock. Often peaty wetlands that might be colloquially termed "bogs" but are technically "fens" with higher pH groundwater as one of the major sources of moisture (true bogs are built ...

Re: The Ancient Hemlock Ravines of the Canadaway Creek Drainage

Thanks Elijah. BeeEnvironment, my understanding is that at this point filling or plugging increment borer holes is considered to have no benefit and even potential to cause harm by interfering with the tree's natural processes for compartmentalizing small wounds. Most of the old trees I have cored i...

Re: Undiscovered Old-Growth near Woodward PA??

Bob, I've read through the past conversations here that made that case, but that conclusion that 220' seems like a reasonable upper limit is exactly what I've come to question. Too many of these dozens of accounts of trees measured in the process of timbering (certainly not clinometer measurements, ...

No problem. I'll include a letter with some pointers on getting started and resources for further reading and practice.

Re: Stateline Woods Preserve, off of Old Kennett Pike

Hi BeeEnvironment, This looks like a great forest site. The Oak-Tulip-Beech forests of that part of the Atlantic coast region can really put it up there. A question about your MonumentalTrees posts, though- they list that you measured the tall beeches with a laser in two-point mode? That's the measu...

Re: Galen WMA

Thanks for sharing these measurements and congrats on the 120' Bur Oak. This site and its surroundings do sound like they have great potential. I wonder what's across the river in that area with the more mature-looking canopy with heterogenous texture? Similar areas in the Conewango Swamp WMA have s...
