Re: Rucker Comparisons

Bob, It's pretty amazing what you've done with the black birch data. I'll keep the data flowing on my end. For the exotic list, I pulled from all of the published data that I could find. The numbers are heavily skewed toward just a few sites, but these are significant sites with a crazy number of ex...

Re: Rucker Comparisons

Bob, Thanks. I read a line wrong. The white birch is at Mohawk, at 102', by John Eichholz. In the south, white birch is present only above 6'000', on Mount Mitchell. It's easily the smallest of the three. Yellow birch tends to hit about 80' on a good site and 90's on excellent sites. It maxes out at...

Re: Rucker Comparisons

Thanks for the trees I missed. Bob, There is a 101' white birch at Smith College. Is that a Betula papyrifera? Elijah, Bob swooped in and stole your quaking champ. I added yours yesterday and then he bumps it off the list. If it's any consolation, you have, by a country mile, the most trees on the e...

Rocky Bluff Recreation Area, Pisgah NF, Madison Co

Rocky Bluff is a small area, straddling Spring Creek, and extending up some small mountains. The species mix is fairly broad, considering it's primarily composed of acidic soils. Rocky Bluff is part of the Bald Mountains. Three ailanthus grow together along the trail. This is my first sighting of th...

Re: Rucker Comparisons

Erik,
Thanks. I was going to ask you about the Betula lenta . I knew there was a 121’ in the Northeast but couldn’t locate the post. I didn’t know about the silver maple. Thanks,
Brian

Re: Rucker Comparisons

This next list is for the Eastern US Rucker. I do not know that these are all current as some measurers have not been posting recently. This is the best that I can come up with at this time. I've gone over all of the posts and consulted the Maxlist and various other state maxlists. I do know of a co...

Re: Daily digests

Kouta,

I haven't been receiving the daily digests either. I just signed up for them a few weeks ago but have yet to receive one.
Non-Americans are very important to the site, especially those with your knowledge. I will begin to use metric on my posts. It's a far, far better system anyway.

Re: Biltmore Estate Trees

I measured a bit along the entrance road and got a few updates in the gardens. Some trees are still growing and some are shrinking. Unfortunately, the fine European larches are dying. One looks completely dead and the other is very nearly dead and has lost a bit of height. I located two more on my i...

Re: Mountains-to-Sea Trail

Bob,

I may try to make contact with them the next time I go. They probably know their formal gardens pretty well but those trees are not that tall. The entrance is where most of the good stuff is.

Re: Cherry Patch Pond, Lake Placid, NY

Elijah,

I just came across the Adirondack research listing. I’d never seen it before. I’ll update the Dacks in a couple of days. 130’ tamarack? Wowzers!
