Bennett Beach Park, Evans NY

Bennett beach is a pretty special little site. It has the distinction of being one of only two or three sites where old-growth eastern hemlock grows on sand dunes (or so I hear, but we'll get to that), a distinction it shares with Marcy Woods, which is almost directly across the lake in southern Ont...

Re: Nikon Prostaff 3 and 5?

That's a good point Don, I might give Nikon customer service a ring tomorrow. The circumstances of purchase (ebay, no warranty) and the origin I suspect for the issue (see below) may mean I'm not covered, however. The lenses look great and the battery reads full, and I've been continuing to have the...

Re: Nikon Prostaff 3 and 5?

Well, the 440 arrived, and I think it's a lemon. Aiming at foliage about 80 feet away, clicking the button 5 times on the same target returned four instances of "cannot measure" and one measurement of 300+ yards. A nearby target a few feet closer gave a few more "cannot measures" and then a 400+ yar...

Re: The big trees of Winterthur Gardens

Wonder if it has something to do with the site quality. Additionally the 17'11" tulip also displays a lot of limb removal; whether natural losses or pruning could the loss of lower limbs be a stimulus towards the growth of taller and more columnar trunks which would contribute to greater height?

Re: The Bart and Bob Show

That's a beautiful-looking elm. There's a moderately large elm surviving as a street tree here in fredonia that a local measured at 12'7" cbh (he was putting together a little pamphlet called "BIG TREES in Fredonia, New York" that you can find in the local library), and it's always pleasant to obser...

Re: Forest Hill Cemetery, Fredonia, NY

Here's the 11'5" cbh red maple. Just bought a rangefinder, so I'm pretty excited. Just need a clinometer and I'm set.

Re: The big trees of Winterthur Gardens

The presence of those monsters in such an open space must be fantastic! Think you might have made a minor typo in the caption to that last picture, though- 258 feet tall would be quite the tulip!

Re: Nikon Prostaff 3 and 5?

Certainly. The main site has some articles on calibrating that I downloaded a while back, so I'll start with those and see how it goes from there. Thanks!
