Re: Codman North conservation area in Lincoln

The oaks appear to have some age. The other hardwoods are growing in some quality soil. They are quite thin for their heights. They should be impressive in another 15-20 years.

Re: Highland Park, Rochester, NY May 3, 2015

You've got quite a few species that I have yet to encounter in an arboretum or large estate. Some of them are quite large, especially the western US species.

Re: Frozen Head State Park, TN

Jess, What trails did you take? I didn't go there to measure trees but observed primarily old growth forest with a likely TN record red hickory. I didn't see many huge trees but large trees are common. Big sugars and buckeyes inhabit steep slopes at the east end of the natural area. I'll try to get ...

Re: Chattooga River, SC

Bob, I don't know that I have enough of a grasp on height distribution for any given species to say anything meaningful. I will say that with tulips, they do extremely well in rich soils but can do very nearly as well in not so rich soils. They seem to do best in east and northeastern facing coves. ...

Re: Chattooga River, SC

Erik, The 185' white pine is in Jess Riddle's report on Cliff Creek, in GA. Bob, It took a good while to find the 146' tulip. It's up a good bit from the river. 150' is certainly a possibility but at the altitude and soil composition of the Chattooga region, it is not a certainty. The East Fork old ...

Re: Hello from Delaware

The 162' dawn redwood is insane! I'm in Asheville, NC, with an abundance of dawn redwoods (200+) but they seem to be slowing in growth when they approach 130'. I'll remeasure a few hot spots soon but I doubt I'll top 130'.

Re: Bearwallow Mountain, Gerton, NC

Larry, That site is the best I've seen for distinguishing hickory species. Most sites and books just treat southern shag as a subspecies and don't give examples. It looks pretty obvious to me that they are the southern variety but I'll check out the fruit in late summer. Michael, Northern shagbark i...

Re: Bearwallow Mountain, Gerton, NC

James,
I couldn't find your post on the hickories. They certainly look spot on for southern shagbark. I'll revisit to check the fruits. I didn't realize just how many were present on my first visit. They dominate along the pasture. How did they get there? Who knows?
