Re: Rochester, NY Area Oct. 30, 2016

The elm looks consistent with Slippery Elm (Ulmus rubra) in terms of leaves and bark. Can't see the buds too well unfortunately, I usually take a close look at them too. Wych Elm (Ulmus glabra) is closely related and quite similar too

Re: Impressively Stout Rock Elm (Ulmus thomasii) at Cavan

Hi Elijah, yeah, the 401 corridor is a relative hotspot. Two public sites which come to mind are: Portland Conservation Area in Verona and Reveler Conservation Area near Crysler. The Verona site is good (many Rock Elms in the general area not on public land + the huge 85' tall specimen in Hartington...

Re: Impressively Stout Rock Elm (Ulmus thomasii) at Cavan

Great to hear mdavie! I've always wanted to explore central Tennessee for Ulmus thomasii and the similar-looking Ulmus serotina

Re: Impressively Stout Rock Elm (Ulmus thomasii) at Cavan

Thanks Lucas! I find it to be a very charming species which ought to be better known :-)

Re: Very Large Rock Elm (Ulmus thomasii) in Merrickville

As with the Hartington Rock Elm, I also checked on the huge Merrickville Rock Elm yesterday on the way home from a roadtrip. Happily, found it too to be still in excellent health in a hot/dry summer with many elms dropping from Dutch Elm Disease.

Re: Big Rock Elm (Ulmus thomasii) in Hartington

Driving home from SW Ontario yesterday, stopped by the large Rock Elms that I know about on the way. So many elms continue to die from Dutch Elm Disease, it's always a bit nerve-wracking to drive up and see how they're doing. Happy to report the Hartington tree continues to be in great health; showi...

Impressively Stout Rock Elm (Ulmus thomasii) at Cavan

Thought I'd share this fairly old-looking wide-spreading Rock Elm growing near Cavan ( 44.191289, -78.465091 ). Height measured to 58', CBH to ~108.3". Most impressive to me is the almost oak-like spread of the crown; old specimens of this species can be quite wide-spreading as is well-illustra...

Re: Very Large White-Cedar (Thuja occidentalis) at cliffLAND

Glad you guys liked the photos and the tree. Looks to be one of the largest of its kind standing in the world. Agree with wisconsitom: Thuja occidentalis gets big if you've got a few centuries to spare. Thuja seem to generally tend toward mass over height. Erik: the surrounding area has many large a...

Very Large White-Cedar (Thuja occidentalis) at cliffLAND

Admired and measured the largest White-Cedar (Thuja occidentalis) that I've encountered, on August 14th at cliffLAND ( http://cliffland.ca/ ) , near Flower Station ON. I measured approximately 73' tall by 146" CBH (didn't measure crown spread). I see this tree sizes up well in comparison with t...

Re: Two more big Red Spruce (Picea rubens)

Hi again Elijah, to answer question #2: There is (to me) a surprising lack of Pines at this 2000 acre old forest. I've seen a small number of unimpressive mature White Pine along the lakeshore, and a handful of seedlings near them. I've seen zero natural-growth Red Pine and Jack Pine; and looked har...
