Re: Live Oak Pensacola Florida

Wow. I'm over in that section of Florida every 12-18 months. I'll have to try to get a look at it.

Re: Manatees, Springs. and some Florida trees

The last time I was there a black vulture was on a low limb above the spring. He was pulling off those little fern-like epiphytes from the tree and dropping them into the clear spring run just to watch them float away.

Re: Manatees, Springs. and some Florida trees

Is that the big cypress on the short spring run? I had my wife take of photo with me of a big cypress there a few years back when we were at the park on vacation.

Nice trees! That area reminds me of the bottomlands in Congaree!

Re: The Senator is dead

I would go see the Senator every time I was in that part of Florida. The first time I saw the tree I was a kid. Around 1967 or so, I think. I was ten years old. Back then what they did to protect the tree was to have an apron of chain like around the trunk. In retrospect, this is probably the way th...

Churchyard Oak

I went to my wife's church to film a vast wall built by slaves who were owned by Revolutionary War hero, General Davidson who had attended that church. For some reason I had never paid much attention to the trees on the vast church property but yesterday I did notice a large oak. I think it's a whit...

Re: Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest

I haven't been there in over two decades. The hemlocks were still there the last time I visited the grove.

At one point we rounded a bend and there along the right bank was a raccoon washing some food it was eating, a wild turkey, and several white-tailed deer. Not so unusual each on their own, but to see them al...

Re: Bearwallow Mountain, Gerton, NC

Southern shagbark,eh?! These are the trees I was asking about here years ago when I climbed the mountain. I couldn't figure out what they were and posted photos here and no one made a determination of what they were. (My photos were none too clear--old camera with low megapixel output.)
