Re: North Chagrin Reservation

Yes, quite a first post! I've spent some time in North Chagrin in the past but before I was really interested in trees. The visitor center used to have some old cross sections. I have no idea of what trees they were. I'm certain there are small patches of old growth in many of the ravines in the Met...

Re: Blue Ridge Parkway Hawthorn

James-sounds like Sycamore Flats was a good area for tulip--there's still one old growth tree left. Ed-It's almost certainly a scarlet hawthorn. I don't know my hawthorns (who can distinguish 80 varieties?) but according to my Smokies tree book, most any high altitude hawthorn is a scarlet and this ...

Re: Octopus Spruce & Cape Meares Spruce Burl

I found a white pine with some similarities but it's not in the same class as that spruce. That is a tremendous tree which simply oozes character! Please post more trees with unusual charcter.

Re: Blue Ridge Parkway Hawthorn

It's only about 20' high with a 25-27' spread. There's another 20 yards away that's ~4' ~18' tall, ~20' spread. There may be more nearby. It's a bit steep once you get off the trail. I had the baby with me so there was no off trail exploring. These hawthorns have some serious age on them...and the t...

Re: Tree ID Help

Thanks. I'm not familiar with any Japanese pines. They must have been planted over large areas in central NC. Will is going to check it out physically when he gets the chance.

Re: Tree ID Help

If that's pitch pine, then I've had pitch pine wrong all along and then have another mystery tree on my hands.

Re: Tree ID Help

Shortleafs have a different bark and grow a good deal taller. I've ruled out longleaf, pitch, white and virginia as well. It must not be native but it has assimilated in the central part of NC.

Tree ID Help

This pine tree is baffling me. It's present in the Piedmont of North Carolina and I've seen a couple of them in the mountains. This one is south of Weaverville, north of Asheville. Its needles are in groups of two. I haven't found it in any of the four guides I have. It is a small to medium sized pi...

Sugar maples, yellow birch and mountain ash are common amongst the heath species such as mountain laurel and rhododendron. douglas falls 002.JPG douglas falls 0...
