Re: New tallest white pine for eastern MA in Lincoln

Excellent report Jared, looking forward to getting over there sooner than later. Love the "wiggly" Scots Pine, and the super gnarl 135' white pine is superb. -AJ Andrew, Thanks! Mount Misery is a nice place to walk around and hunt for big trees. Maybe we can coordinate a meeting there som...

Re: New tallest white pine for eastern MA in Lincoln

NTS, Today I met up with several friends to go walking in the Mount Misery conservation area in Lincoln. I first explored this place with Doug Bidlack earlier this year. Back then he showed me the mighty white pine tree that he had measured in 2014, as well as a tall pitch pine and a stocky black bi...

Re: Massachusetts sassafras query

Andrew, I realize I'm joining the discussion over a year after it was initiated, but I'm curious to know if you ever investigated that allegedly tall sassafras in the Blue Hills Reservation. Earlier this year I found some mature, forest-grown sassafras here in Harvard at about 80' tall, and even bro...

Re: Codman North conservation area in Lincoln

Jared, Pretty darned impressive! The number of 120+ hemlocks within a small area is very noteworthy. What physical area are we dealing with? Bob Bob, Thanks! There may be as many as ten 120'+ hemlocks in here, but the official count is now at seven. The core of the hemlock stand is an area of about...

Codman North conservation area in Lincoln

This report has been months in the making, as I first discovered and began measuring trees in the Codman North conservation area in July of last year. My interest was turned on to this site not by anyone else’s recommendation, but by my own search of Google satellite imagery. Initially, I was trying...

Re: A Meaningful Dedication

Bob, No worries! I didn’t realize you were thinking of this forum when you asked me if I wanted to be the one to share the news. You tell the story nicely. All, As Ray and Tony were preparing for the video shoot, Bob and I were examining some of the tall, middle-aged and older trees at the base of t...

Re: Pharaoh Lake Wilderness, Essex & Warren Counties, NY

Elijah, Wow! You’ve found some great trees up there! I spent the other weekend camping on Putnam Pond with some friends. Even though I had my rangefinder with me, between swatting at black flies and doing fun things with my friends I wasn’t able to properly measure any of the trees. There were some ...

Re: Superpines in Thoreau's backyard (Lincoln MA)

Andrew, Oops, you too have a vote in naming those pines. It's all in the capable hands of the A-Team-East. Bob I respectfully give the nod to Doug and Jared, besides I would name it something completely wrong ;-) -AJ I would defer to Doug, as he first fired infrared laser pulses at these trees and ...

Re: Northborough: Edmund Hill Woods and more

I want to make it clear that my initial comment on Doug’s methods wasn’t meant disparagingly; Doug is one of the most competent tree measurers I know. He and I have discussed the methods that we use in measuring trees and he has planted a healthy seed of doubt in my mind regarding some of our techni...

Re: 130 and above in Thoreau Land

Ents, Oops! I inadvertantly left off Jared Lockwood from the A-team list. Jared is very much A-team. In fact, Jared is super A-team. He's the Dude! Sorry for the omission, Brother Jared. You get my allotment of ice cream scoops (courtesy of Brother Ray) for the next two weeks. Bob Thanks, Bob! No w...
