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?

Re: identity unknown

Black birch can have many different looks. I'm not certain it is black birch but it is a possibility. The cracking pattern doesn't look quite right and the bark is a bit too tan but it is possible that it's a birch. They occasionally have bluish bark in the southern part of their range. The bark may...

Re: Can anyone identify this tree species?

My guess is the silver leaved linden. It has a silvery underside. The leaves appear rather small for Tilia heterophylla, and I doubt it would be planted along a stream. If not silver leaved linden, likely another European linden.

Re: Spackmans Creek Pine, Delaware Water Gap NRA

Bart,
I've done that on a few occasions as well. Fortunately, I've caught most of the errors but a couple of them had been published. Humble pie isn't all that tasty but at least it's low in sugar.

Re: Colonial Williamsburg Compton Oak

Wow! The size is tremendous for a young tree. I had no idea those oaks even crossed. If there weren't any records of its planting, I'd bet people would say it's 250 years old.
