A super gnarly Live Oak

I found this remarkably old looking Quercus virginiana in eastern Orange county, in the Tosohatchee WMA. Rap sheet for older looking: extreme crown dieback, twisted knotty trunk, very weathered bark and all around appearance of having lived a hard difficult life. The main trunk appears to be long go...

Re: Nikon Forestry Pro can't see branch ends in winter

With mine I've never come across any apparent problem bouncing around the canopy in sine mode off of what appear to be very small branches.

Never thought I'd see the adjective Boasnian, my anthro training finally comes in handy.

Re: This should draw some winces

Revolutionary change is needed if there is to be any hope. The problem was for seen 40 years ago. The failure to do anything about it is a damning indictment of the prevailing economic, legal and political structures. Down the line failed failed failed all of humanity. Even its tiny class of ultra r...

Re: Corbin Hill and the Dover Oak

Joshua- I've seen many examples of cut Live Oaks and recorded grow rates on avg. of .375" radial. I don't believe a Live Oak has ever been cored due to the density. Most of the ages have been estimated. Larry Everything I could find on the topic of coring Live Oaks said the borer gets crushed or be...

Re: Where is NTS Going

One of the worst problems with facebook diverting people from BBS type sites is that FB is absolute rubbish at archiving information. Finding even mildly old posts is a nightmare that usually ends in failure. I don't see this ever changing, all they seem to care about is collecting user data and del...

Re: TIPS - Sparing Discovery Locations and Photos

The bromeliad parallel came to mind immediately, there's no shortage of bromeliad enthusiasts & pilfering activities around here. I do wonder exactly how many tree hunter types are in my area, its a bit rarer of an interest. Due to the other factors I mentioned as well as almost everywhere I search ...

Re: TIPS - Sparing Discovery Locations and Photos

I've never lived or visited much out west, I understand things are qualitatively different when the trees in question are as spectacularly large as Redwoods & Sequoias, and of potential logging demand as well. So I hope you'll forgive me not understanding what the reason for the NDA sort of concern ...
