Re: The board is still not working right

What do you think, is it possible that the strange behavior of the BBS recently was due to a hacker attack? Are the username-password combinations possibly in the hands of criminals now? The way I look at web sites that have logins is that there are two kinds, one is for financial, medical or simil...

Re: Old Growth Forest

So when fire naturally moves through some of these old growth forests and burns much of what's in sight to a crisp, as is normal over centuries, can we assume you find the same renewed feeling walking in there right after a burn? Because I can to into recovering forests 60 yrs. after logging and ge...

Oops, you too have a vote in naming those pines. It's all in the capable hands of the A-Team-East.

I respectfully give the nod to Doug and Jared, besides I would name it something completely wrong ;-)

Re: Superpines in Thoreau's backyard (Lincoln MA)

Not to make too big a deal about it (draw too much attention) but the grove itself could be considered "The Walden Tall Pines", and individual tree names could include Louisa May Alcott, Ralph Waldo Emerson, HT etc. etc. It's good fun naming trees, looking forward to seeing what Doug, Jare...

Re: 130 and above in Thoreau Land

Speaking of Thoreau Land I went to Richard Higgins' book event at the Concord Bookstore. Most excellent talk and book. Looking forward to visiting some local trees with Richard when it can happen.

Re: 130 and above in Thoreau Land

AJ, I'm now curious about the history of the woods next to Walden. Who owned it previous to the state which, I think, now owns it? Did they log it over the years? I wonder if it's now fully protected from logging? Is there a trail around the pond? I recall going to Walden in the early '70s- had tro...

Re: 130 and above in Thoreau Land

Speaking of "Thoreau Land". I'm just curious, has anyone studied the forest at Walden Pond? Joe The immediate woods around Walden are fairly young, there are some nice white pines here and there along the edge but they don't look tall. The recent plus 150' white pine measured in Lincoln i...

Re: 130 and above in Thoreau Land

Ents, Oops! I inadvertantly left off Jared Lockwood from the A-team list. Jared is very much A-team. In fact, Jared is super A-team. He's the Dude! Sorry for the omission, Brother Jared. You get my allotment of ice cream scoops (courtesy of Brother Ray) for the next two weeks. Bob Yeah, Jared perso...

Re: Northborough: Edmund Hill Woods and more

Do you think knowing the age of the magnolia might help in deciding ? Probably not, it is a fast grower, growth rates likely close to the surrounding white pines. It may be only be 80-90 years old which is well after it's introduction as a landscape tree. All guesses, we know it's very difficult to...

Re: Northborough: Edmund Hill Woods and more

Beautiful. Does Cucumber Magnolia have some kind of a disjunct native presence there that just doesn't show on most range maps, or would these have come to the area anthropogenically and naturalized? Under debate! When I first located this tree in 2010 I found a range map showing a thin sliver of M...
