Re: Atlanta, GA Rucker Index reaches 143.1'

Another update! Atlanta RHI 10 pushes past 145 to 145.2'! I still want to remeasure a few of these, but yesterday I found new high point on Sweetgum (now 147') and Shumard oak (now 144.3'). Pretty exciting stuff!

I guess if we were only looking at metro-areas, I think Atlanta would be at or near the top nationwide (though Memphis is up there too, right Jess?)

Re: Fernbank Forest, GA - Rucker 10 Index reaches 136'

I know the mountainous sites that Jess has spent much time in have some taller trees, but not sure how deep the tall trees go.... sure, there's super tall white pines up there, but not su...

Re: Tree Maximums - Genus of the Week: Carpinus (Hornbeam)

I think reviving the species of the week is a great idea. I'm a huge fan. You were able to bring many tree measurers together to compile species specific data in one place with a great format. I think it brought out the inner competitor in all of us too- in a good way. Keep it rollin'!
