Re: Royal Gorge, Kitsuma Trail, Pisgah Nat'l Forest, NC

Brian,

That's amazing growth there. There are at least a couple of trees in the Cowee Mountains (East Barkers Creek) that we visited back in 2010 that were taller. One hit 184'+ and the other 186'+

Re: "The most exciting novel about trees you’ll ever read"

I agree that The Overstory is a gripping and insightful work of fiction. Powers is a talented writer. I'd like to read more of his work.

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.

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 trees are so s...

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 contrast, ...
