Re: Ash height record?

Very interesting. I'd be glad to hear of the current status of known White Ash height records in New England- just the other day the question came up on facebook of whether any of the ash in Mohawk Trail State Forest were still standing over 150'. Sounds like you've got an exceptional specimen not j...

Re: Big Basin - Allegany State Park

Elijah, maybe when Bob's able to head down we can make it a little rendezvous. Lots of good stuff yet to measure, and some of the larger stems would be great to model for volume. A big question in my mind- would a Rucker Volume Index for ASP be able to match an RVI for the much tinier Leolyn Grove a...

Re: Dutchess County's Champion Trees May 6 2017

Nice. Between that, the 141' tulip, the hemlock over 120' etc I am sure this site would end up on the list of NY RHI 120 sites given a thorough measuring. Looking forward to hearing about this other estate!

Re: Big Basin - Allegany State Park

Saturday 4/6 I put some miles in on the other side of ASP1, mostly across Stoddard Creek in the (more or less) southwestern quarter of the Old-Growth area defined by NYNHP in the map from the original post. From the trailhead I set off from I was able to sight another cluster of white pines in the d...

Re: Large Shumard Oak. Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge

That is some oak! Pretty large crown spread for forest-grown, too. Also really loving the photos of the spring bloom- they look to me like some golden ragwort (Packera) species? Are these (and the oak) on the floodplain itself or former floodplain that's now persistently dry?

Re: Big Basin - Allegany State Park

Brian, that may well be true. At the least the tallest I know I've heard of is in MA. There's room for questions about the effects of time from first planting and different seed sources on the distribution of tall norway spruce in NA, though. It might be that places like west virginia or the smokies...

Re: Cannot post photos

Ryan, I imagine it has something to do with the BBS anti-spam or security features, but I'm not terribly well versed in that sort of thing either. Sure enough, I think I had to log back in more than 20 times in order to get all of the components of my new Allegany State Park report uploaded and put ...

Re: 100.8 meter giant Shorea found in Malaysia

This is big news- I never thought I'd see the day when a non-eucalypt claimed the title of tallest flowering plant! Glad it's a proper tape-drop, but from the description of the setting I imagine the really big question is how the location of the base was determined. It sounds like these guys have b...

Re: Cannot post photos

I've been having a related but different issue- when I upload a photo, sometimes it goes through, but sometimes instead I get the login page with "you must be logged in to do that." And then have to log back in and do it all again. Sometimes it goes through but when I submit the post, it goes to the...

Big Basin - Allegany State Park

Allegany State Park's Big Basin is noted by many sources as being home to one of NY state's largest contiguous tracts of old-growth forest, perhaps the largest outside of the adirondacks. The document "A Botanical Survey of Allegany State Park", copyrighted in 1937, devotes a whole chapter to this p...
