Re: Could this Lamberhurst tree be the oldest in the country

To have some more information about yews (Taxus baccata) in the UK and their possible age I recommend to look at the website http://www.ancient-yew.org/ of the Ancient Yew Group, wich is linked to The Tree Register of the British Isles (http://www.treeregister.org/). The Ancient Yew Group gives a lo...

Re: Swiss Tree hunter Michel Brunner

The best you can do to know how Michel measured the Larch and wy so low near the ground is mailing him: his e-mail adress is lindenbaum@gmx.ch He understands English.

Re: Giant Johnson City trees April 2011

Will, Fantasic trees! Indeed all very large. About the elm: in Europe pumila never gets very large, in the UK the tallest are 20 m (65 ft), the biggest till now 220 cm (7 ft) cbh.

Re: Bialowieza Forest, Poland April 2011

In Europe we never made a Rucker Index. I did now for Bialowieza.
The Rucker 10 Height Index is 134.14, the Rucker 10 Girth Index is 15.45.
This is with native species only.

Bialowieza-1676.jpg Jess, indeed it seems strange that ...

Re: Invasive versus Native Question

About Ivy: while it is native in Europe here it cannot be considered as an invasive species. Indeed it can overgrow and suffocate the supporting trees, but this is often the case with older and week specimen of the smaller tree-species like the Prunus avium tree. Also it can make trees more vulnerab...
