Re: Manufacturing of an increment borer

You have taken on a very challenging project. Years ago, I toyed with the idea of making a 30" borer to look at growth rings on a giant burr oak in Goll Woods Preserve (northwest Ohio), for a precipitation history study. The tree was already dead but still standing The Preserve has a strict &qu...

Re: Black Oak

I was interested in the status of this tree and I talked to someone today who helps manage the estate on which the black oak grew. He said that the tree basically succumbed to old age, and had to be taken down a while back. The tree probably grew beyond it's normal life span due to the extensive cab...

Re: walnut and Q alba prices

Timber cutting activities may have a somewhat negative connotation for some on this site but I think it's good news that Midwest timber prices are again on the rise. I believe that this actually has a positive affect in preserving woodlands, at least here in the Midwest corn belt. In the old days ab...

Re: Hidden Life of Trees

I read the book a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it. It presented a good amount of science as well as the author's personal experience and insight as an observer of tree behavior. I learned a lot and he also verified some of my own thoughts and theories about trees. As might have been mentioned in...

Re: State Champion Chestnut Oak (Quercus prinus)

Today I was able to get in contact with the DNR forester who came upon the tree several years ago during a logging operation. He measured the tree and realized its significance, and fortunately kept the loggers away from it. He said that it does have a tall single clear stem and has obviously grown ...

Re: State Champion Chestnut Oak (Quercus prinus)

Does anyone have any more information or pictures of this state champion chestnut oak tree in Shawnee State Forest in southern Ohio? I can't open the picture in Yeti's posting. Is the tree single stemmed? It sounds like they had some bad storm damage down there, and they have done some logging, but ...

Re: Chinkapin Oak Database

Mark, I was able to open the data base and I see that you do indeed have a Goll Woods Chinkapin already included. I believe that there may be a much bigger one there so I'll have to take a look next time I'm out there. I appreciate any shape or form of tree, but the timber part of me wants to rate t...

Re: Chinkapin Oak Database

Hi Matt, My computer is a little stubborn so I can't seem to open up your list. But I just wanted to be sure that you include the big Chinkapin Oak growing in Goll Woods north of Archbold Ohio. There are several large Chinkapins there but I believe the biggest is along a trail maybe a couple hundred...

Re: even tree tops

Another possible explanation - as the ground elevation gets lower the moisture supply to the tree roots increases either from storm runoff or from subsurface water movement.

Re: Michigan Eastern Red-cedar

I've always liked red cedars but while my field guide shows the native range extending here into west central Ohio I'm not aware that there are any stands or even single specimens that are growing here naturally. Maybe some of you know differently. There are a few individual red cedars scattered aro...
