Re: More Exceptional Trees From Redwood National Park

Nice find! I agree that new 350' is rare because of Lidar. But it's still hopeful to find 20k trees. I think John and Max found a few of them over the past year. 30k on the other hand, seems to extremely hard to find.

Re: Tallest Tree South Of SF Bay Confirmed

An update to this forum: the tallest tree south of San Francisco is now no longer the tree mentioned here. There is a new grove that I discovered and it single-handedly doubles the number of tall trees (over 90 m--295') in the Santa Cruz Mountains. This grove contains the new record and was found v...

Re: Coast Redwood vs Giant Sequoia

Not long ago, I had the time to indulge in a long held wish to cross the central Sierras on four roads that cross back and forth between Hiway 49 and 395. Taking 120 across Yosemite, then 108 across Sonora Pass, then 4 across Monitor Pass, and 88 across Carson Pass, with 50 across Luther Pass, you ...

Re: Redwood Coast - Autumn / Winter & 2015 / 2016

Where are your wings, Mario? Gaines ... What you wrote reminds me of the obvious need to have roads going from point A to point B. And, that the Avenue was built through forest when there was so much more of the old growth redwoods standing. They had to have a road north to south somewhere. Also, I ...

I've seen another tree with a fused ledge in HRSP. Pretty interesting.

Re: New 28k SEGI in Peyrone Grove

Considering this, I feel that it's more likely that there are some big undiscovered giant sequoias than coastal redwoods. Interesting to see you say that. I figured by available satellite imagery alone, the big broccoli top SEGI can be relatively easily distinguished from the surrounding forest. On...

Re: New 28k SEGI in Peyrone Grove

Here is a fun tree Zane and I spotted from a trip to Calaveras. It's among a group of white fir saplings. Traveling through the saplings isn't too bad as they keep the mosquitos away.

Re: New 28k SEGI in Peyrone Grove

Its funny because I was just posting the same thing to your other post about Waterfall tree. It does take a lot of time and camping to really dig deep in there. Its not like the redwood forests where virtually any spot can be visited in one day and back by sunset if its planned right. I remember se...
