After reviewing the photo of the crown on the tall sycamore, I realized I hadn't spent enough time on the left side of the tree. The foliage is a bit thicker and partially obscured by a tuliptree. I got several new angles on it and it is now the tallest known sycamore, at 168.5'. I headed up a diffe...

I found roughly one half acre of old growth. The old growth consisted of trees you would typically find in the...

Re: Green swamp preserve, nc

I took a stroll through the Green Swamp Preserve last week. The preserve abounds with longleaf savannas. It's a different experience than I've ever had. The canopy is pretty consistent in height so I took just a handful of measurements.

Re: Lake Superior Provincial Park

Accepiter,

Those white pines look ancient. I don't see that type of bark at the southern end of its range. They are taller than I would expect that far north. Did you take any girth measurements?

Re: New Record Tallest Sycamore

Elijah,

My friend is getting the bug. He measured a couple of the tall white pines and got similar numbers to mine. He'll be joining me from time to time.

BeeE,

Re: Would anyone have interest if the eNTS magazine started up again?

BeeE,

Welcome to the big time! I was about to extend an invitation to make the magazine on your own, but I thought that might be a bit much to expect from a new member, but new members often have the extra zest to do projects. This is quite an accomplishment! Kudos.
