Re: Lindsey Creek Giant

John, To paraphrase:  I didn't see the author for the tree. Reminds me of when a ranger in Sequoia N.P. began talking about Mark Twain (the author), and I spontaneously thought she was talking about the giant sequoia stump bearing his name... Perhaps a side effect of having the head full of trees 24...

A favorite Google satellite image is taken at an angle, making part of the wide trunk of Boole Tree in Converse Basin Grove visible; see attached image.

Michael,

Thanks for explaining the leapfrog method with prism and pole! Although my English is not too bad, a graphic illustration would of course be the icing on the cake...

Bob,

From what I've read, common juniper is a highly adaptable species, but prefers to grow in dry soil, in full sun or partial shade, being sensitive only to a soil too wet.

Re: The tale of the tallest common juniper

Topic update: So, the question still remains: where does the tallest living common juniper grow at this moment? Well, maybe in Finland; see Kouta's report: http://ents-bbs.org/viewtopic.php?f=396&t=3272 Sweden has reclaimed the title of having the tallest known common juniper (Juniperus communis) in...

Re: Lindsey Creek Giant

The felling must have been a significant operation given the number of different photos. The very same tree is featured no less than three times in Carranco's 'Redwood Lumber Industry'. The photos in the book are different from the ones above. Diameter is claimed to be 20'. The particularly shaped ...

Re: Lindsey Creek Giant

A photo of Lindsey Creek Giant would then likely show the tree lying on the ground; perhaps the break at 130 feet could be discerned. If photos were taken while Lindsey Creek Giant was still standing it would be helpful to know what trunk shape to look for. Like if the base was much buttressed or no...

Re: The tale of the tallest common juniper

Mario,

When writing common juniper I referred to Juniperus communis. Common juniper being the common name. Forgot to include the species in the post.

The John Day area junipers are apparently Juniperus occidentalis (western juniper or Sierra juniper) according to Wikipedia.
