Re: Visiting the ancient Lafayette Sycamore in the Brandywine Battlefield

Hi Brian, Thanks for your compliments. It did take some time to find those photos, but, as you can see, the results were worth it. On monumental trees: https://www.monumentaltrees.com/en/usa/pennsylvania/delawarecounty/8234_thebrandywinebattlefieldstatepark/ , you can see many other girths of the La...

Re: Visiting the ancient Lafayette Sycamore in the Brandywine Battlefield

Brian, Well, this beautiful sycamore was known to be alive since at least during the revolution, as Lafayette's wound was treated beneath it, and he used the house as his headquarters. That would make it at least ~250 years old. What may be the reason for some of the changes in the landscape and bui...

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

Brian,

Thanks for your feedback. I hope enough users would be able to contribute a few articles to be included in the magazine issues, but any amount should hopefully be fine.

Visiting the ancient Lafayette Sycamore in the Brandywine Battlefield

Hi Ents, Recently I visited the very large and ancient Lafayette Sycamore at the Brandywine Battlefield, right off of U.S route 1 in Chadds Ford, PA. It is a historic tree that rests on a hilltop, and is seen by thousands of travelers each day. This tree has witnessed much history, such as the Battl...

Re: New Record Tallest Sycamore

Brian, Ah ok. I'll go check there. Sometimes the ENTS BBS does not allow me to upload photos, but I found out after a while that the photos have to be 2mb or less in file size for them to be accepted. Most of my photos I upload are over 2mb, so I use a free online JPG compressor to compress the file...

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

Hi Brian, Thanks! I hope I would be of some service for the ENTS, even if for only a few years. I may be able to get a magazine out by the end of April, but probably it would make more sense to have one released for the next publication period, by the end of August. Recently, I was thinking that may...

Re: New Record Tallest Sycamore

Wow! That must be an amazing sycamore! Do you have some pictures? I would love to see a sycamore with a crown over 100 feet deep!
Congrats on your finding!

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

Bob, Sounds good. I was thinking that maybe the easiest way to submit your (or anyone's. Everyone, feel free to contribute articles about anything related to trees) article(s) is to maybe send it to me via email (edumailha @ Gmail.com)? I don't know how often you use images in articles, but I believ...

Re: New undiscovered old-growth area in Silver Lake, Susquehanna County PA?

Hi Bob,

I contacted Dale recently, and he said it was an interesting discovery that he may be able to check out someday if he gets the chance to visit Salt Springs State Park, just 4.5 miles east of Silver Lake.

Lets hope there are some impressive trees left!
