Re: Powder Mills Park, Pittsfield, Monroe County

Elijah, The bark still favors red but it is inconclusive. Your consistent five leaves and lack of red would certainly indicate pignut. The fruits are also inconclusive but at least one has the pignut shape and at least one has the half dehiscence. I tend to agree with your conclusion on pignut but t...

Re: Taughannock Falls State Park, Trumansburg, Tompkins Coun

Elijah,
You got some solid numbers! Yellow birch at 95' is tough to find. They're out there but not in many sites. I didn't realize Tree-of-Heaven would grow that well that far north.

Re: Updated Live Oak Project Listing

I have no idea if they are named. The largest Drayton that you had in the listing should be the Drayton Oak. As for the others, who knows?

Re: Big Laurel Creek, Hot Springs, NC

Josh, The patterns on the ash differ greatly from the Biltmore ash I've seen in mountain environments. They all grow right along the shore. I haven't seen many Biltmore ash along streams. The Biltmore ash in Big Creek also differ a bit in pattern from what I usually see. In looking at pics from Big ...

Re: Big Laurel Creek, Hot Springs, NC

I hiked this trail again. There is some good news and some bad news. I'll start with the bad news. The formerly healthy hemlocks from 2014, are now all in peril. I noticed just one dead hemlock but they are all defoliating from the ground up. Treatment could help but it would have to happen soon. It...

Re: Updated Live Oak Project Listing

Larry, I have some measurements from 2012, at Middelton Place, and from Drayton Hall, in 2013, that are not on your list. Check out my pictures as a couple of them are questionable as not just being doubles but just being connected several feet up. They're no worse than the Seven Sisters. Middleton ...

Mountains-to-Sea Trail Old Growth, Asheville, NC

The Mountains-to-Sea Trail is a trail that I've measured extensively over the 70 miles of it that are near Asheville. I did a ring count on a black oak a few years ago and found it to be in the 180 range, where it was cut after falling across the trail. The cut was well up on the tree and the bark w...

Re: McCleod Plantation, Charleston, SC

Larry, I heard that a cookie from the Middleton Oak had been saved but I never heard a count on it. When I was there, the cuts were a bit too high for me to see the rings. I do question whether that limb was similar in age to the germination of the tree. The Middleton oak has (had) many lower, very ...

Re: Name that Tree

Larry,
You got two right. This quiz is rather challenging. I'll add numbers to the pictures.

Re: McCleod Plantation, Charleston, SC

It appears that live oaks were smaller in the past because they primarily grew in maritime forests. They certainly were large but not as large as the open grown live oaks we know of today. I can't recall the source for live oaks being smaller but someone did a study of some sort on maritime forests ...
