Re: LiDAR for Jocassee Gorges State Park

I have crunched the LiDAR for all of the NC Portion of Jocassee Gorges and Jess Riddle had done the same for much of the SC portion, Tamassee Knob, Wadakoe Mountain, and other well known hot spots.

Re: Big Laurel Creek, Hot Springs, NC

I'm frequently wrong. I'll get a twig next time I'm down there and check it out.

Re: Big Laurel Creek, Hot Springs, NC

Hey Brian,

I'm glad you are getting out to cool places. The western Blue Ridge river gorges are really diverse. On that note, I'm pretty sure that the ash along the trail are Fraxinus biltmoreana. Keep the hits coming.

Re: Pisgah National Forest, Davidson River Area, NC

Brian, Do you have any photos of the Fraxinus biltmoreana from the site? I am searching for potential sites to save a some Biltmore Ash from emerald ash borer beetle. The Looking Glass site would be an outlier from a geographic and elevation standpoint, and a high priority for preservation. Thanks! ...

Re: A Hickory ID Request

Elijah,

Hickories 2 and 3 look a lot like Carya ovalis (red hickory) to me. Hickory 1 looks more like a mockernut. I won't hazard a guess on the others.

Re: Chile Trip Part 2: Parque National Vicente Perez Rosales

Is it possible some folks are using the 550 and just assuming the 3-point routine is the same thing as Sine method? Erik, I think you are probably correct. In another post the measuring method was listed as "tangent style". I don't think that is the only problem because the Araucaria tree...

Re: Chile Trip Part 2: Parque National Vicente Perez Rosales

Investigating further, I have found that all of the measurements of "superalberi" seem unbelievably inflated. He measured many of the same Araucaria (Monkey Puzzle) trees I did and his measurements are consistently 20 m or more higher than mine. He lists one monkey puzzle at 54 meters. In ...

Re: Chile Trip Part 2: Parque National Vicente Perez Rosales

I am very skeptical of the accuracy of this measurement. Click on the link for the map. I stayed at Refugio Tinquilco very near this tree and it appears the tree is right on the trail. The tallest Nothofagus dombeyi I measured there was ~42 meters and I really doubt I could have missed a tree 14 met...

Re: Tamassee Knob and Station Cove remeasurements, SC

Great Report, Jess! I visited Tamassee Knob two years ago at you and L.L. Gaddy's recommendation. It's a wonderful place. I think I saw the 14.6' tulip tree if it is on a south-facing slope. Maybe a trip to remeasure Wadako is also in order? Patrick McMillan can get us access to 300 acres of private...

Re: Mighty Fine Kentucky Pines

Jim & Mark, I did a search for tight hollow in the trip reports and that tree came up. After reading more closely, I see that it's in Crane Hollow or elsewhere around Cumberland Falls and that Tight Hollow was just mentioned in the discussion. I look forward to some photos and a trip report in t...
