Re: Lower Huron Metroparks, MI

Doug B./All,

Doug B. mentioned the sizable Black Walnut that we measured earlier in this post. So here it is. The walnut measured 11.84' x 111' shooting from base to highest point, straight up.
It was a cold day, but man did we some some good trees!

Re: Michigan area users?

Doug, Now that you mention it, I have had some interest in the Metamora-Hadley or Ortonville State Recreation areas; have you ever heard or been to those areas? My dad lives in Metamora and I have always been interested in going, just haven't gotten the chance, so it is unexplored! Who knows. But yo...

Re: Michigan area users?

I grew up in Milford which is about 20-25 minutes northeast of Ann Arbor by car. Since my parents still live there and I have several ongoing tree projects in the area, I visit quite often. In fact I'll be going back on the 8th of March on Thursday after leaving work a couple of hours early and I'l...

Re: Highest Leaf Now 379.46 ft. Another Redwood Breaches 370

Awesome, so glad to hear that the tree is doing well; these updates are greatly appreciated! The foliage pictures are great too. Its not too often we get to see things like that from such a renowned specimen. I can't wait to go see Jedediah and Prairie Creek this summer, it's been too long since I'v...

Re: Michigan area users?

Bob, That's great to hear that you have taken such a liking to the state of Michigan. Sadly, it sounds like I am alone in the Michigan. :( But I guess that gives me more stomping grounds, so to speak. That is sad to here that the white pines have been so damaged by the storms in the area. Scary, bec...

Re: new user, any help?

Bob, 1.Wow, thank you for all of the support you and your website has given me. It really is encouraging to be backed by such a strong representation of people whom I can relate with. In a city where politics and sports rule all, there is not much help for a kid like me to make it, but it's what I h...

Re: Michigan area users?

yes, that's quite correct; Keeweenaw Peninsula (at the very tippy-top of the UP) is really the only other place in Michigan to see old growth white pines, and that is a HIKE. I plan to make a trip to the UP this summer though. its so under rated in beauty throughout the country. I recommend more peo...
