Re: Nice Video on Sequoia and fire

From my time hiking around in the Sierra National forest a few years ago it was clear that fire suppression allowed heavy growth of Incense Cedar trees around the mature mature sequoias which crowds out light for sequoia seedlings. At the same time the cedar's lower branches are mostly dead creating...

Re: Facebook Group called Old Growth Tree Climbing

I climb primarily in the east so the issues are different than in the PNW old-growth. However the impact issues in the forest are the same. Take white pine for example, my favorite eastern species. Where I am the finest whites often grow right on the edge of or partially in wooded wetlands. In a sin...

Re: Facebook Group called Old Growth Tree Climbing

Tree climbing can be controversial if you think about it too hard. Does an 8 year old feel a climb is 'controversial'? I recently had a chance to give my perspective to a group of people taking a class at Shoreline College from the Washington Native Plant Society. At the conclusion of the 12 week s...

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

Still my beating heart! I'll second that, beautiful stand and trees. I'll never argue with good height but girthiness (is that a word?) for Atlantic White Cedar is so great to see.

Re: Book Impressions – Nature’s Temples by Joan Maloof

I had the opportunity to host a book event with Joan Maloof at the 18th century former tavern where I live in Carlisle, MA. We packed the the biggest room in the house with a great group, including some superb local naturalists. Joan held forth in front of a roaring fire and kept everyone enthralled...

Continuing CT tuliptree hunting

A friend who lives in Newtown, CT brought a grove of tuliptrees in Paugussett State Park to my attention. The area is on the west side of the forest, I only looked at a fraction of the overall forest. The grove has 5 big trees in relatively close proximity and widening out from there I found more bi...

Re: Big Sycamore in Bethel, CT

Ha, I just ate at the Sycamore Drive-in/Diner next to the Bethel Sycamore last evening 2/27/17. Magnificent tree, root zone is mostly paved over, amazing how the tree survives. On a lark a couple of friends and I attempted to do a measuring climb on the tree in late winter 2016. We pulled up, set up...

Re: 150-ft white pine in eastern MA

Andrew, I'm very sorry about not having contacted you for this trip as I know you would have enjoyed it. Entirely my fault. Jared and I were talking about possibly measuring some Atlantic white-cedars next weekend in southeastern Mass. I have a couple sites picked out and we should be able to find ...
