Re: Tuliptrees and biomass models

Ents, It is my hope that a few intrepid Ents will sign on to a developing project to volume model tuliptrees using reticle and hypsometer and software designed to accept the data and compute trunk volumes of the modeled tuliptrees. The attachment shows the beginning of the project. We could make thi...

Re: New undiscovered old-growth area in Silver Lake, Susquehanna County PA?

BeeE,

This is a significant discovery. Dale Luthringer would be an excellent person to visit the site and report on it. Dale has a keen eye for old growth. He then could contact others in academia and in state government. Just a thought.

Re: Oak Alley

BeeE, et al., Oak Alley is internationally famous. It has been no stranger to Hollywood. And guess what? Larry is friends with the owner who put Larry up while he modeled the Josephine Stewart Oak. Fancy that. That is just way cool. The oak modeling project could gain us a lot of valuable attention ...

Re: Would anyone have interest if the eNTS magazine started up again?

BeeE, No reason why Google Docs can't work for fairly simple formats. I've used Google Docs once or twice. I'll explore its use to see how I could employ it for an article. We certainly don't want to negatively impact your school work. So, we can figure how to take you up on your generous offer with...

Devin,

We can help you measure trees if you get equipment. We can offer suggestions on what instruments to get also to fit your budget.

Re: Would anyone have interest if the eNTS magazine started up again?

BeeE, Your offer is extremely generous. The ENTS magazine was a very valuable contribution to the cause, and I hated to see it discontinued. I would be willing to contribute articles in its revival. I would say that publishing 3 or 4 times our year would be sufficient. Dr. Don Bragg was our champion...

Re: Old-growth forest carbon sinks overestimated

Lucas, Thanks for bringing this study to our attention. It is a good topic for discussion. I think that there is value to the study so long as it isn't interpreted as applying to all forests. West Coast big tree forests are far from a steady state at 300 years. In addition, while old trees slow thei...

Re: Big Creek

Great report, Brian. Your tree-measuring productivity is awesome to behold. Report on the healthy hemlocks is inspiring. The young black birch topping 106 feet is both surprising and not surprising. Still, it height ceiling is always seems to lie between 110 and 120 feet, south to north.

Re: What is the tallest Pignut Hickory (Carya Glabra)?

Bee,

No, not even close. In the southern Apps, the species exceeds 150 feet and I think a few have been measured to over 160. I expect that one of Brian’s RHI lists has the hgt champ. Not sure.
