Re: Possible 150 footer

Good to hear Ryan, unfortunately I will not be back in the US until April 6th, but if you have not done a measurement by then, I, or a group could come down for a measuring visit. Here is an image of a comparable tree Cedrela odorata in the Meliaceae (mahogany) family from a new (to me) area of old ...

Re: Possible 150 footer

If you look for posts back in 2012, you will find that Ryan LeClair, Bob Leverett and I found at least 5 trees in two locations near Trumble Connecticut that exceeded 150'. One, discovered by Ryan, was cristened by Bob the "LeClair Tulip Poplar" . It was then 155' tall, and has probably grown quite ...

Re: Bienville National Forest Tallahala Wildlife Management

Larry,

Great Cherry bark oaks. Impressive heights for flood plain oaks, and a nice pine species I had never heard of. Excuse my ignorance and thanks for this post.

Re: Oaks originated near the Arctic Circle

Kouta,

Interesting. I do remember finding some beautiful, somewhat flattened acorn like seeds on a project in Borneo in the 90's. Perhaps the trees they came from were in one of these genera.

Re: Oaks originated near the Arctic Circle

Larry, In Maarten Kappelle's 2008 book Biodiversity of the Oak Forests of Tropical America , he notes that: "Oak (Quercus) itself originated in the Northern Hemisphere and is therefore a genus that migrated during Pleistocene times, from the cool Northern temperate zone to the tropics in the South, ...

Re: Codman North conservation area in Lincoln

Looks like these hemlocks are in a ravine and have some competition from closely spaced tall neighbors. I'm guessing that was what Bob was driving at, as the relatively flat conditions in most of Eastern MA allow more storm damage, and less protection from drying out during droughts, than is commonl...

Re: Hello from Massachusetts

Welcome to NTS, Bob laid out the basics, but aside from worthwhile contributions in your drawings, keep in mind that you don't have to be a scientist to measure trees, and there are several NTS members in the state who can teach you an affordable method to do this. Although my wife Connie and I are ...

Re: a Live Oak for Larry to add to his list

Re: Central Florida checking in

Good to hear,

Are there any native figs there, or are they all further south, or in different habitats? 3 large ficus species native to Florida are Ficus Americana, F. citrifolia, and F. Auria.
