Re: Highland Park, Rochester, NY May 3, 2015

I noticed that big sugar maple girth. What was the form like? I think that's about the biggest I've ever heard of in NY state.

Re: The Ancient Hemlock Ravines of the Canadaway Creek Drain

Returning recently to stand C, it turns out that the old growth extends around the edge of the intersection of the smaller ravine with of the main ravine of the Canadaway for some distance on the slope. More old hemlocks and some very impressive sugar maples join the count. This may be one of the la...

Re: Largest elm in NY

With the Johnstown Elm sadly deceased, it's interesting to compare the AF point totals of these other large elms you're finding with NY's largest forest-grown elm in Zoar Valley- at 125' tall, 121"cbh, and 100' crown spread when last measured by Elijah in 2016 for a total of 271 points.

Re: Big Butternut

Just curious, what was the basis of the suggestion that this is probably x bixbyi rather than cinerea? I believe it's easy for a reading of the Purdue butternut guide to overstate the prevalence of hybridity and understate the trait variation of native cinerea in terms of young twig color, lenticel ...

Re: County Rucker Index

Brian, Erik, Elijah, Jared, et. al., If we want to entertain regional competition, can we adopt a system of handicaps? I’m thinking that 20 feet would do western Mass nicely. Kind of an interesting concept. Bob Hi Bob, I notice that your namesake town of Leverett, MA is at roughly the same latitude...

Re: County Rucker Index

This really is a fun concept. In NY I spend the most time in my home county of Chautauqua County (the westernmost in the state) and then in Cattaraugus County (immediately to the east of Chautauqua County). Between Zoar Valley and Allegany State Park, I suspect Cattaraugus County is almost definitel...

Re: An excel formula for the SOLO R/T?

You would just need two input columns, and then a third column with a simple formula that incorporates the reticle factor and the inputs from the first two columns (just the same math problem you do on paper now). Then a fourth column dividing the results from the third column by three, if you're in...

Re: Catching up

Bob, if I had to make a guess from the bark alone, I'd call that a cuke! Probably isn't, though.

Thanks for sharing.

Re: Canadaway Creek in Arkwright, NY

Elijah, that's interesting... around here it seemed the sycamores were last to leaf out, but they did put on nice full crowns when they did. It's been a high-precipitation spring here but with concentrated rain periods interspersed with a couple days at a time of warm sunny weather. Still no good fo...

Re: Canadaway Creek in Arkwright, NY

This year, a group out of SUNY Fredonia is publishing a book on the cultural and natural history of the Canadaway Creek, and I was invited to write a section discussing the trees and forests associated with the creek. While it avoids being too technical for the most part, members here will be glad t...
