Re: Forest Hill Cemetery, Fredonia, NY

Well I can confidently say that there will be plenty of data to supply! Along with the mentioned, my favorite forest site is a small but deep gorge a few miles away with and upland forest dominated by tulip (reforested during the depression era) but also some much older tulips in a sliver of steep s...

Re: New dbh champ for SESE

I think the concern may be more that if the tree's photo is widely circulated in association with its champion status, others who are less discriminating in regards to tree protection who come across the tree and recognize it from previous exposure to the photos might then publicize its location. I'...

Re: Forest Hill Cemetery, Fredonia, NY

After returning my malfunctioning nikon 440, I jumped on a deal on a demo unit of a newer Bushnell rangefinder model that displays an accelerometer-based angle reading in degrees in the viewfinder (normally well out of my price range, but in this case barely pricier than the used 440). I'll be worki...

Re: New dbh champ for SESE

I was one of them, but I sort of assumed it was some type of regional designation I'd pick up on and sort of forgot about it once I got into the thread.

Re: Fuertes Bird Sanctuary

Definitely sounds like a must-visit site. Hopefully that storm didn't do too much damage; the same system dumped on my area just prior and the local waterfall looked more like a rock-quarry explosion set to play on loop than a flowing body of water.

Re: Bois D'Arc Wildlife Management Area

While I love the northeastern species up here it amazes me to read southern reports like yours from Arkansas; each one seems to feature at least a few trees I've never heard of, and such diversity at any given site. Cedar Elm? Nutmeg Hickory? Texas Sophora and Nuttall Oak? Hard to imagine that the d...

Re: Marsh-billings-Rockefeller National Historic Park Projec

Given that the scars occur so uniformly on both the maples I'd be inclined to suspect they resulted from interaction with a wire fence at some point in the past. They do seem to be present in a bit of a "boundary zone."

Re: Cook Forest Photos

Beautiful, thanks for sharing! Photographing tall, straight trees like hemlocks in a way that conveys their mass is always a challenge. Relying on context is usually the most effective tactic, and you've done that well here. Looking at these photos certainly does add to my desire to see these trees ...

Re: Drawing Trees

Perhaps if there are enough interested we could form a little "nature journaling club" here; I just started one in the last week as well. I've been neglecting my drawing for a long time and it shows. If I might add another resource in the vein of the OP, this PDF is part of the Roger Tory Peterson I...

Re: Bennett Beach Park, Evans NY

Ah, that's too bad. Sure looks beautiful through the fence. Thanks for the tip on the other spot, it looks attractive on the satellite view. Not sure about access, though, as the beach was posted going south. I suppose if there's a private property inbetween I can always just stay in the water to ge...
