Re: Rucker Comparisons

Brian, I have a couple of updates: 1. The Picea glauca is a planted tree in the Catskills, not the Adirondacks. The stand was discovered by Jess Riddle. The tallest tree there is 127.6’, as of 6/21/20. 2. The Butternut listed is dead. I recently found a taller one in Washington Grove Park, Rochester...

Re: Zoar Valley Update

NTS, This past weekend I spent a day at Zoar, looking to revisit the area on and around the Skinny Dip Terrace. I didn’t want to duplicate and/or step on any of the work Erik has been doing, so I pretty much stuck to my plan. I made a measurement of the tallest Sycamore out of curiosity, and got wit...

Re: White Pine Growth Rates Newcomb, NY

NTS, On June 29, I returned to Newcomb to check on the White Pine plantation. So far, I’ve documented 14 trees over 140’ in height, though none exceeding 150’; no doubt several additional trees would make my list if I had more time to survey the area. The tallest now is 147’ and some change. I was a...

Re: Washington Grove City Park, NY

NTS, The last weekend of June I made a visit to Washington Grove. My mission was to remeasure the forest’s tallest Butternut, as I’d recently confirmed that the state height champion for the species at Green Lakes State Park was deceased. The Butternut I was after looked great and turned out to be a...

Re: Robert H. Treman State Park

Brian, Thanks. It’s a beautiful place, likely with a good bit of old growth forest. I’ve read through your lists and have no real gripes about anything. Some numbers are outdated, but not by any considerable amount. I think having everything in one place is very helpful. Almost all of my measurement...

Re: Cherry Patch Pond, Lake Placid, NY

Brian, The Tamarack in Newcomb was 131’ as of last July. I’ll probably remeasure it next month. For the past three or four years I’ve kept a spreadsheet containing all 140’+ White Pines growing in Huntington Forest, which is where the Tamarack is. Huntington has the tallest White Spruce I’ve found i...

Re: Robert H. Treman State Park

NTS, Yesterday, I revisited this park, hiking the gorge trails on both sides of Enfield Glen. The weather was mild and beautifully clear, and the park was well-attended, in spite some of the rules implemented in response to COVID (one-way traffic on some narrow sections of trail, blocked-off parking...

Re: Rucker Comparisons

Brian, Again, very impressive; I know this represents a lot of work: Thank you. As for individual states, NY is pretty easy; I keep a spreadsheet that's up to date (as far as I know). I'll also see what I can do for VA. NY RHI 5 = 160.22 RHI 10 = 152.06 RHI 15 = 146.92 RHI 20 = 143.25 1. Eastern Whi...

Re: Cherry Patch Pond, Lake Placid, NY

NTS, Last Sunday, 6/7, I returned to Cherry Patch Pond to check on the big Balsam Fir. I located it, and it’s doing very well; current dimensions are Height: 108.7’ CBH: 5.69’ Average Crown Spread (5 spokes): 17’ The biggest Red Spruce mentioned above has fallen, unfortunately. A rough count yielded...

Cole’s Woods, Warren County

NTS, This spring I surveyed this delightful tract of forest on the north side of the city of Glens Falls, NY. From what I’ve gathered on the internet, Cole’s Woods is primarily a cross country skiing spot, complete with lighted and groomed trails. When the snow is gone, the trails are opened to peop...
