Re: Eastern OLDLIST

Re: State Champion Tulip, KY's tallest

Hi Rand, We do this in a couple of ways. We compare radial growth to monthly maximum measured temperatures and then total monthly precipitation to get some insight on how trees respond to climate. You are correct in that sometimes it is hotter it is sometimes dry. I just compared average monthly max...
