Re: Big and Tall Trees Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge

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.

Re: Atlantic white cedar. Florida champion.

I kayaked through the Juniper Prairie Wilderness. An amazing place. We saw so much wildlife. 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.)

Re: Atlantic white cedar. Florida champion.

We'll go back. We try to head to Florida to go kayaking at least once a year. Blackwater River was high on our list so, and remains so.

Atlantic white cedar. Florida champion.

I forgot to post this video. My wife and I made a brief visit to Blackwater River State Park in May. We were supposed to kayak the river but--believe it on not--the weather was too cold the day we went. So I ended up just doing some hiking and touring of the elevated boardwalk in the park before we ...
