Re: A comeback in Iceland

Very nice video. It shows Scandinavian common sense. They'll grow trees but manage the forests- eventually allowing harvesting trees too. Unfortunately, here in America there are people who don't want trees to be cut. Joe Joe...I see it as a test of their sense of sustainability. If like a patient ...

Re: A comeback in Iceland

Great youtube presentation Rand. I traveled to Iceland several years ago, and saw few forests in traversing the west half of the island. It's my understanding that the Iceland government is eager to reforest, especially of late, and from the youtube presentation, I think they're on the right track. ...

Re: Photo measuring

Larry- Rest assured that Bob and I are on the issue of champions without photos. There are a number of scenarios that explain this, but ultimately, they should all have photos (one full frontal, four quadrant-ed images circling the bottom 8'). It may well be that if it's a national champion, that th...

Re: Photo measuring

Joe- I'm not sure I could imagine a scenario where you would want access to a stand, but didn't have landowner approval. But were that the case, and you were able to photograph a tree of interest, you could certainly obtain a fair amount of information about that tree, remotely. And easily within th...

Re: Photo measuring

Bob- Just a quick comment to add...Ents members have heard us call for improved photo documentation. Bob's addition to the Appendix here is another reason to capture useful photos (in the case of nominations/certifications they are essential) with at least a full frontal view when possible, and enou...

Re: Sailor Flat Expedition - Remote Old Growth Forest

Great foray Mike/Duncan!
Lot to like about undisturbed Tahoe area forests/meadows!
And the Towle Tree, what big platy blocks of bark!
Could it be a ponderosa/Jeffrey hybrid?

Re: Iceland's Dramatic Landscape

Having visited Iceland within the last decade, and seen portions of the West half of roaded Iceland, I can attest to the paucity of trees. I did have occasion to view one of the few (at that time) forest plantations, and it was looking successful. Here is an obvious opportunity for Iceland to encour...
