Re: Historic white oak of Harvard/Boxborough

Jared Splendid find. Rich Higgins will love to learn about that tree. I hope to get the two of you hooked up. I think he'd like to so a story on historic Massachusetts trees for the Boston Globe. Bob Bob, Thanks. I would certainly like to meet your friend Rich. In doing a little bit of research on ...

Historic white oak of Harvard/Boxborough

After meandering in the woods of Harvard, I took the long way back to my car to check out what I thought to be a magnificently tall pine tree. It turned out to be growing from a hillside behind a building, so that was a dud. However, when I reached the town line between Harvard and Boxborough I stop...

Re: Nashoba Woodlands, Littleton, MA

Update on Tahattawan pine: Since my last post on this grand tree I have visited and measured it a good number of times, both to work on my own abilities with a rangefinder and clinometer and to feel confident in my declaration of its height. An afternoon spent shooting at a rather boring tree with ...

Re: Meet the New Massachusetts State Champion American Elm

In my recent travels through Lancaster, MA I stopped to look at the big sycamore growing by the road in front of the recycling center. Across the road is a sign which mentions a champion American elm that once grew along the Nashua River. I'll let you read the sign... Lancaster Elm Sign.jpg That new...

Re: Nashoba Woodlands, Littleton, MA

Thanks for the exciting post. That 130.5-foot white pine is a really good find. I assume that you used the Sine Method since you have a Nikon Prostaff 440 and a clinometer app. I will enter Tahattawan in my database of Massachusetts sites with trees reaching 130 feet or more. I've attached the late...

Nashoba Woodlands, Littleton, MA

For the past couple weeks I have been doing some internet research to find good plots of conservation land in my neck of the woods that could be harboring tall trees. In reading the guide to conservation land in Littleton, specifically the description of the Cobb Memorial Forest (a portion of Nashob...

Re: Salutations from Massachusetts!

Thank you all for the warm welcome! I’m glad to have found a group of folks that are enthusiastic about trees and I’m eager to see what I can learn from and contribute to the discussion. I recently acquired my first laser rangefinder (a used Nikon ProStaff Laser 440 in very good condition) and have ...

Salutations from Massachusetts!

Hello! I’m Jared, and I currently wander beneath the trees of eastern-central Massachusetts. I’ve had an interest in plants and natural spaces since I was young, and have deepened my scientific understanding of the botanical world as an undergraduate and graduate student. It has only been relatively...
