Re: Green Lakes State Park, New York

Thanks, Bob. Yes, except for the cottonwood and tuliptree, these are already in the database. I do need to update the dimensions, though.

Re: Green Lakes State Park, New York

NTS, I did some measuring at Green Lakes this afternoon, and have a few updates to share. All previous measurements I’ve made here were done with my old Nikon 440 and clinometer, so I was expecting some different results this time with my Trupulse. A couple of trees earned promotions, but most ended...

Re: Big and Tall Trees Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge

Larry,

I love the bark on those pines. Up here, the great Whites will get blocky bark like that, but only on very old trees. The growth rates on your southern hardwoods always amazes me, as well. Stay warm,

Re: NY Rucker Height Index

NTS, In wrapping up the year's measuring work, I'm posting an up to date version of NY's maximum tree height list, by species. I've included three lists: one containing all species measured within the borders of NY State, one containing species native to the region in which the tree was measured (wh...

Re: tall black cherry re-measures

Dale,

Those are some first-class cherries. It’s been several years since I went to Cook; I really should return soon. Thanks for the updates and photos,

Re: Zoar Valley Update

Nice work, Erik. Directly below Point Peter, descending the western edge of the point, is a nice group of tall Sugar Maples. I did some exploring in that area, but didn’t record any measurements. I see a clear difference in the Black Maple leaves you found and the normal Sugar Maple leaves. I found ...

Re: LiDAR for Zoar Valley MUA

Thanks, Erik. I must have been looking at the map wrong. This may be a new tree, then.

Re: LiDAR for Zoar Valley MUA

Michael, This 150’ target may be a Tulip Erik found last year, but I’m not sure. GPS coordinates would definitely help. If the target is upstream from the Forty Rd. parking area, it may be on private land, but might still be reachable by boat. The section of the MUA which is unavailable is generally...

Re: Gosnell Big Woods Preserve, Town of Webster, Monroe Coun

Erik and Larry, Thanks. The 16’ Red Oak and a 14-footer nearby seem to have been at least partially open-grown for most of their lifetimes. The same probably could be said of the 20’+ Red Oak on Howlands Island. All of these trees have large crown areas and begin branching low on the trunk. Elijah

Re: LiDAR Coverage for the Eastern USA

Thanks again, Michael. I've been looking at Ricketts Glen for a while, but it looks like it'll drop some on my list of priorities for now. You may have saved me a lot of time better spent elsewhere. I just thought of another location worth looking at, if you have the time. Ragged Mountain Reservoir ...
