Re: Atlantic white-cedars in Brendan Byrne SF, NJ

Larry, I'd love to see some Atlantic white-cedars in the Southeast. Probably the ones around the Great Dismal Swamp in southeastern Virginia and northeastern North Carolina will be the first because they are closer to me and I know a couple people down there who know something about that area. But F...

Re: Atlantic white-cedars in Brendan Byrne SF, NJ

Andrew, well if girthiness isn't a word maybe it should be! I also love the chunky ones. Even better to find a forest full of them and, as Erik noted, packed real close together. I think the best way to really appreciate a site like this relative to others would be to calculate the basal area of Atl...

Re: Atlantic white-cedars in Brendan Byrne SF, NJ

Erik, yes, all the photos and measurements are from when we visited the site in late February of 2013. I'm afraid I have a few other posts to make to get me up to date. I'm glad you liked the pictures but they still don't properly reflect the beauty of the place. I found that few people in New Jerse...

Atlantic white-cedars in Brendan Byrne SF, NJ

NTS, back in late February of 2013 my wife and I had the opportunity to revisit a nice stand of Atlantic white-cedars in Brendan Byrne State Forest, New Jersey. When I lived in New Jersey in the late 90's I collected black flies and caddisflies from this site. At that time I think it was called Leba...

Atlantic white-cedars in eastern MA

NTS, here are a few measurements I've made of this species over the last few years. In December of 2012 I measured two trees in Rehoboth State Park, Rehoboth. 5.08' x 71.9' 4.41' x 74.5' Both of these measurements were made with my Nikon 440 using the sine method. In February of 2013 I measured one ...

Re: 150-ft white pine in eastern MA

Elijah, I very much agree with Jared that this is not likely a plantation. As for age I honestly don't feel qualified to answer that and Jared's evidence is better than anything that I can offer. Bob, you could easily fit the 6 trees that we measured within 1 acre. On the way out Jared made a couple...

Re: 150-ft white pine in eastern MA

Jared, Andrew, Elijah, all, just wanted to say how wonderful it was to meet Jared for the first time and to measure such impressive trees on a spectacular day all around! Also, the 'old' record for this site was 8.56' x 144' 3" and the remeasure today was 8.75' x 143' 10". It was last (and...

Re: Link to Virginia Tech Dendrology Lab

Bob,

that sounds great! Your long term measurements of white pines will be especially valuable when it comes to assessing growth of large members of that species. Looking forward to it.

Re: Link to Virginia Tech Dendrology Lab

Don, so now that you've started talking about a relational database I have a question about what might be possible regarding multiple measurements of the same tree over time. So far, everybody has been talking about how all of these tree measurements over a large area will better help us to see the ...

Re: Howland's Island

Elijah, the one book I would like to have is "The Shrub Identification Book" by George W. D. Symonds. It is an older book and all the pictures are in black and white but it is better than any other shrub book that I've seen for the eastern US. I've been for no good reason been getting alon...
