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

Hi Elijah, thanks! I verified the observation. I think you might find iNaturalist a useful site; I definitely do in terms of getting my observations "out there" in a public, searchable database so that populations of trees become known and verifiable. Also reminds me where I've already been tree hun...

Re: Very Large Healthy Butternut in Kanata

Hi Erik, Black Walnut doesn't quite range this far north naturally, the closest I've seen "natural" growth is along the St. Lawrence River at Prescott Ontario (there is a *huge* Black Walnut in the town) which presumably predates European settlement of this area, link below. https://goo.gl/maps/w58E...

Very Large Healthy Butternut in Kanata

Hi everyone, I am happy to report this big and healthy-looking Butternut (Juglans cinerea) at Hewitt Park in Kanata, found with fellow tree-hunter Janet Mason on Sunday March 3rd. This tree showed little if any cankering, a full and very widespreading dominant crown in a ~ old mixed Thuja lowland, w...

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

That is a fantastic couple of Rock Elms Elijah! I wonder if you would consider entering these into the iNaturalist database, or if you don't have an account would you consider allowing me to enter them on your behalf giving full credit to you? I think it is important to document this species general...

Re: Canadaway Creek Outlet Floodplain

I should have also mentioned: Rock Elm bark x-section has the same "white-lines" appearance as American Elm; if anything the white-lines are more pronounced on Rock Elm

Re: Canadaway Creek Outlet Floodplain

Hi Erik, very interesting site and report. I am particularly interested in your report of Rock Elm (Ulmus thomasii), which is a species I have a long interest and near obsession with. I'd be curious to know how that species ID is being made. In the photo, it doesn't look like Rock Elm to me, and Roc...

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
