Re: Nikon Prostaff 3 and 5?

Thanks for the response, I'll plan to grab the 5 or 550 depending on the prices I find tomorrow.

Re: Forest Hill Cemetery, Fredonia, NY

A couple updates: -The "red" maples measured are indeed all sugar maples. There seem to be two distinct bark types spread across a wide range of diameters, so I'm going to investigate this further through leaf comparisons and seed-helicopter comparisons to determine if there may be some involvement ...

Re: Forest Hill Cemetery, Fredonia, NY

That certainly could be the case. My confusion then would be as to the one I did ID as sugar maple, which is a similar girth but very different bark, and very nearby. The more "platey" bark on that tree evoked the sugar maples I tapped this spring. I really should check leaves more carefully. I'll g...

Re: Forest Hill Cemetery, Fredonia, NY

Now the question is whether the oaks I think are red oak are black oak. I'll have to spend a little more time with them. I was surprised when the tape read the tulip here as larger than the one you measured there, but I suspect yours is taller from the picture. Close to getting my rangefinder, so we...

Nikon Prostaff 3 and 5?

I'm likely about to drop the money for a used nikon prostaff 550 but I've noticed the prostaff 3 and 5 (as well as some "aculon" models) available at good prices as well. I couldn't find info on any of these by way of the forum search and wondered why they aren't really in use by any ents? Are they ...

Re: Anyone been to Zoar lately?

I did make it down to the flats. The sycamores down there are great- since I can't check heights yet I can only attend to girths, for which none of the sycamores on the flats seem exceptional individually but to have a nearly pure stand of very large ones altogether has a powerful effect on the view...

Forest Hill Cemetery, Fredonia, NY

Forest Hill Cemetery is the largest cemetery in Fredonia. It contains an interesting and diverse set of very large trees, many of which are likely older than the village. The plot was purchased to complement the smaller adjacent Pioneer Cemetery in 1854, and was described as "primeval forest." As th...

Re: Fuertes Bird Sanctuary

Ithaca sure is fun like that. :-D I'd be surprised if there really aren't any big tree spots hiding in those gorges, just waiting for someone with a rangefinder to walk in... Sounds like a great cottonwood site. Similar to the older postings here on cottonwood sites on lake champlain- long, skinny l...

Re: Best Central NY Sites for Tree Species

I would really like to get to green lakes sp sometime. I have quite a soft-spot for Northern Whitecedar and I sadly live just outside of its native range. Thanks for the guide!
