Re: The concept of fire rotation...

Bob- Leave it be, road It well for access needed to protect the fools that build residences into the wildland urban interface, and have good exit strategy when catastrophic fire conditions begin to mount. Only the pressure of the burgeoning Southern California metropoli forces expansion into the oth...

Re: FR whodunnit mystery

JQM-Helios- In part, I am objecting to your verbosity. Your negativity. But mostly because you hurt your cause, and ours. I am going to respond to parts of your thread below, with hyphenated font... So are you objecting that the area around superlative trees got bashed? Ignoring your syntactical err...

Re: FR whodunnit mystery

As President of the Western branch of the NTS, I have been remiss in reviewing the recent spate of posts until recently. Having taken the time to review all comments from 2015 on, it's apparent that there is significant discord expressed regarding the trashing of area around superlative redwoods. In...

Re: Redwood Stumps

What follows is snippet from UC Berkeley Study on Florissant Fossil Beds, meant to be included above... Among the hallmarks of the monument are the remains of the massive petrified redwood trees that once dominated the Florissant forest of 150 plant species. The famous "Redwood trio" at Florissant i...

Re: Redwood Stumps

For a 'bigger picture', witness the millions year old redwood stump (one of several) that I first saw in a trans-US travel in the 1970's, located in the Florissant Fossil Beds in Colorado, at todays elevation of approximately 8500' Florissant Redwood Stump.docx [img][attachment=0]Screen Shot 2020-04...

Re: More Exceptional Trees From Redwood National Park

Michael- I read with interest, your description of "leap frogging". While I have not employed such a technique, your account reminded me of my years as a surveyor, starting in 1967, with mountain transits and steel chains (old style "topo" chains) to restore BLM boundary lines from original 1880's s...

Re: Redwood Coast Photos - 2018

Mario- Reviewing your coast photos (very nice!), the one immediately above has, along it's left side, maybe 2/3rds of the way up, three horizontal lines resembling what elsewhere I might think were scars caused by say a barbed wire fence line. I'm not suggesting that is the case. What do you suspect...

Re: The concept of fire rotation...

Bob- I should have jumped on this, but reviewing date of your post, it occurred while Rhonda and I were celebrating our 30th Anniversary, and I suspect my mind was distracted for awhile. Re your comments immediately above, your questions are apt. I have to digress to answer your first question; 1a)w...

Re: Lindsey Creek Giant

John- A belated reply where I join F.Jacobsen's comment (...didn't see the author for the trees). First question re Jack London was 'where was White Fang' ? As I reviewed the discussion, I did follow Taylor's initial description, but 'branch' where he 'fuses'. We may both agree, once Michael defines...

Re: pictures of some trees at my timberland

Gaines- Reflecting my lifelong appreciation of what came to be called old-growth, the thoughts I had paging down through your comments and images, had me thinking of the way I "define old-growth". 1) Vertical stand structure is heterogeneous (reflects diversity of ages and types) 2) Horizontal heter...
