Wood Stabalizer Question

Recently, the second largest remaining American elm in Iowa was cut after sustaining storm damage. It was a beautiful tree with a circumference of 16'1", a height of over 80' and a crown spread of 115'. Slices of the trunk were saved for the Iowa Arborist Association and for the Science Center ...

Re: Hartwick Pines State Park, MI

Doug, I'm glad you were finally able to spend some time measuring trees at Hartwick Pines. I enjoyed reading your report very much. Congratulations on the tallest red pine! Your photograph of the tallest white pine (whole tree) that I measured in September of 2013 really shows its great height. I wa...

Nice Iowa Walnut

Standing on the University of Iowa Campus is a large black walnut that was nominated in the Iowa Big Tree Program back in 1979. Although it has been the state champion for several years it wasn't the largest known walnut in Iowa back in 1979. It was a respectable walnut then with a circumference of ...

Re: Texas Hill Country

Will, I look forward to more information about the potentially huge baldcypress in North Carolina! I have always considered the big baldcypress in the hill country to have a single trunk but the possibility of fused multiple trunks should be explored. Here are three more photographs which hopefully ...

Re: Texas Hill Country

Doug- I just used gambel oak in place of blackjack oak to see if you and other members were paying attention. Seriously, I don't know what possessed me to do that, I knew it was post oak and blackjack oak in the Cross Timbers region! We were very lucky to find the Baird's rat snake out crawling arou...

Texas Hill Country

In May of 2015 Rita and I went on vacation to the hill country of Texas which occupies the eastern part of the Edward’s Plateau. We stayed near Bandera, Texas which is about 30 miles northwest of San Antonio. We were primarily on a birding trip to see two endemic species. We were looking for the gol...

Re: Tallest-Known Subalpine Fir in Colorado?

Matt,

Congratulations on the 133' subalpine fir! I think that beats the tallest I have measured by 10 or 12 feet. Even though it is dead it is good to have the height documented. I'm sorry it didn't work out for me to come this year. Say hello to Will, Larry and Bob for me.

Re: Pioneer Mothers Memorial Forest

Larry, I'm glad you enjoyed my photographs and post about Pioneer Mothers Memorial Forest. I'm so busy it is usually quite a while before I submit a post after visiting an interesting area. I often see other post I would like to comment on but I rarely have the time. For example, I have been wanting...
