Re: great oak, Basking Ridge, NJ revisited

That sure is one great big benevolent octopus of an oak! Glad you had good luck with the weather, sounds like some places over that way have been getting pretty heavy rain recently.

Re: Re: SUNY Fredonia College Lodge/Herbert J. Mackie Forest

Good point regarding the red maple. The old-growth section is certainly not undisturbed, but my hunch is that some of the hardwoods are older than previously reported. Indeed it would be odd for logging a little over a hundred years ago to take all the hardwoods but spare so many high-quality hemloc...

Re: NTS Does It Again - New Colorado Height Champion

I'm really thinking of starting a change jar with "Durango" written on the side. I really love getting into steep gorges and figuring out how to access the seemingly inaccessible. I'd really like to help out with the exploring next year. There's something about steep gorges, anywhere you go, that se...

SUNY Fredonia College Lodge/Herbert J. Mackie Forest Camp

The SUNY Fredonia College Lodge (formerly the Herbert J. Mackie College Camp) has had an exciting year. In late spring (shortly after the end of the semester) someone happened to notice that FSA, the corporation in charge of both dining and facilities services on campus as well as ownership of the l...

Re: NTS Does It Again - New Colorado Height Champion

It's been such a pleasure to follow along as all these fantastic trees come out of the San Juans. I just want to say a thank-you from someone who was stuck back east for the work all of you have put into finding and sharing these, and it's exciting to hear that if the connections Bob is talking abou...

Re: Return to Cook Forest

As I was not in a position to travel to Durango this year but have been following intently here on the boards, I'm thrilled to hear that there'll be a gathering so close to home this coming spring. That may be the first time I'll get to Cook Forest as well- can't wait to see what will probably be my...

Re: Height distribution of eastern US tree species

Some of the measuring I've done recently is for existing growth study plots (previously girth-only) wherein every tree in a 30x30m space is measured. I still have at least one more to measure but once I've got the data all together it'll be interesting to see if the height distribution displays a si...

Re: Hemlock Death Toll Approx. #?

That's quite a motivation to get out an appreciate the beautiful hemlocks left here in my area while they're still pretty much untouched. Every time I contemplate a younger hemlock, the sensation is bittersweet- before it's likelihood of attaining great height and old-growth form may have been slim,...

Re: Old Trees in Wyoming

Coring scraggly junipers sounds like an exciting challenge! I can relate to your love of those old, gnarled trees. Over in WNY I'm in the vicinity of the thin crescent-shaped native range of the Northern Whitecedar, Thuja occidentalis, a cousin to the junipers though much closer to the giant western...

Re: huge trees in Tennessee

That is an incredible catalpa. They're all pretty small up here, mostly just planted for fencepost wood.
