I grew up thinking beech was a sorry tree until I found it looks nothing like that in canker free trees. I thought all beech was affected until I saw recently that 5% or less is resistant. I th...

Re: The Clear Creek Aspen Twins (CO)

Cool.

I didn't think aspen got that tall.

Around here it is lucky to survive a 40 year rotation.

I do remember huge poplars, likely balsam poplar, on the Petite Cascapedia River in QC. One was 3 feet thick and tall but it has been 20+ years.

Re: 240 feet in height????

Thanks all, Suspicions confirmed. Also "Here is another point. Oaks lose their apical dominance when they mature. Their crowns flatten out and upward growth slows significantly. So increased age does not lead to an ever taller oak, only marginally. This allows us to measure trees in a mature, but no...
