Re: North Chagrin Reservation

Will, They were all found on what I would consider a dry upland site - and they were at or or near the top of a slope. The trail runs along the south-face of a wide scenic ravine in the park, the trees there are all exposed to more southern hemisphere sunlight and there is definitely a rapid runoff ...

Re: North Chagrin Reservation

Steve, This is very helpful, I will be returning to this location to photograph the oak that has the smaller leaves. I would guess that it is not a Red Oak based on how different the other two Red Oak leaves look and feel. The reds both feel thin and papery, and they do have that matte finish that y...

Oak Tree ID help

ENTS, This weekend I hiked on a new trail at Chagrin which winds through an area with Oak trees not in their typical forms I am used to seeing. I'm having trouble with ID. I assume most of these oaks will end up being varieties of Red or White oak - which are the only two common oaks in the forest. ...

Re: North Chagrin Reservation: Cumulative Forest Data

Randy, The crowns on both of the 17' trees look undamaged. The 17' pair is rooted into a slope unlike the 18'ers. Actually I think they were sitting on a "leveled" area half way down a slope. Anyways right above them was the 11' 6" Blackgum. Maybe 50 yards north of them is the weather...

Re: Cuyahoga Valley composite

Steve, It looks like the Valley has a chance to hit over 140, incredible!, are there any "forests" north of the Ohio River (from any of the states) that have ever reached at or above 140? I like how you've consolidated those nearby parks. They are all part of just one forest. I would like ...

Re: North Chagrin Reservation: Cumulative Forest Data

Another great hike today, *11' 6"x111' Blackgum - new girth maximum. daayummm! *Another pair of giant red oak "twins", this close proximity pair was 17' 8"x123.3' (sine height measured from an adjacent ravine) and 17' 5"x118.5' (quick and dirty from the base of the tree). *G...

Re: Ohio and the ENTS Big Tree Database

Steve, ENTS I don't mind speeding up the databases effectiveness by entering manually (Just for Ohio right now). This is how I've handled it so far: The URL from the original site description is linked The individuals who took the measurements are listed along with the appropriate dates Only concret...

Re: Ohio and the ENTS Big Tree Database

Ed and Bob,

I'll take that as a green light. The idea behind this collective U.S. database is an excellent one, and I can advance the data pool without much effort. Depending on how fast I get through Ohio I may offer further assistance with other localities.

Ohio and the ENTS Big Tree Database

ENTS, While adding my own sites to the BTD I noticed that I don't need to list myself as one of the visitors from a particular trip. The information reflecting Ohio seems to be concentrated in the northeast of the state. When I read reports like these: http://www.nativetreesociety.org/fieldtrips/ohi...

Re: North Chagrin Reservation: Cumulative Forest Data

ENTS, I just wanted to chime in with an update: I now have all the tools I necessary to obtain ENTS accurate field measurements! I'm practicing the laser/clinometer/sine method, and I'm in the process of collecting all of the important GPS points for leaf-drop before I forget where everything is. I ...
