Re: Hello from Cambridge

Welcome, Jake! You certainly have no qualms about being adventurous. There have been multiple discussions about how trees get water to the tops of trees. It's over my head, literally, but others may chime in on the issue.

Re: LiDAR for Brandy Wine Creek SP - Tallest is 168 feet

I see that there is a Tuliptree Nature Preserve at the far west part of the park. The tallest hits are not located in the nature preserve so I would guess that area has some age.

Re: North Chagrin Reservation: Cumulative Forest Data

Stefan, The highest number, equipment permitting and being read correctly, will be the most accurate. Adjusting footing to get the clickover point yields better accuracy than just pointing and shooting. Some terrain simply does not lend itself well to microadjustments. Your best and most accurate sh...

Re: Trip Summary - GSMNP

Bob, Oops, it took me a while to respond but the tallest tulip I have along the Parkway is 157', in the same grove as some relic tulips, one topping 18' cbh, but with a taper. The grove is just north of the Folk Art Center in Asheville, below the Parkway, along Bull Creek, near Rattlesnake Lodge. Br...

Re: North Chagrin Reservation: Cumulative Forest Data

Nice work! The highest reading is the truest height. That sucker is growing rapidly. In 5 or 6 years, it may become a member of the 170 club, only the second for northeast Ohio.

Re: Curtis Creek, Mackey Mountain Area, Pisgah NF, NC

I forgot about this picture. The little hemlock is regenerating from the bottom up. All of the hemlocks I've encountered that have staved off death from the adelgid have lost their foliage from the bottom up with some of the upper crown retaining needles. Hopefully, this will become more commonplace...

Re: New Height Record for Sycamore

Will, It's nice to have a record of growth increments! This trio's trunks grow so erratically while every other sycamore in the area soars straight as an arrow. As you are very much aware, but to inform others, the surrounding coves harbor many 150'-160' sycamores but none as undulating as this one....

Re: Big Creek

I revisited a rich cove I went to last year to check out the old growth above the second and third growth and to hopefully find a Smokies record for sweetgum. I came close with sweetgum on the flats below the rich cove and Baxter Creek but fell four feet shy on the sweetgum. A quick remeasure of the...
