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...

Blue Ridge Parkway Hawthorn

This hawthorn is near the Glassmine Falls overlook on the BRP. It's most likely a scarlet hawthorn. It's at 5200' with other stunted trees. 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...

Re: New 370' class redwood to report

I can't even wrap my mind around a 370 footer. I just saw a 188 footer and even that's a bit mind boggling. But twice that height? These posts fuel my desire to get out west as well.

Re: Birkhead Mountains Wilderness

According to Wilderness.net, the Birkheads are primarily old growth. I've seen zero old growth in the Uwharries. Is that white oak with the 90-90 turns? I'm finding many trees like that one but the horizontal length is quite impressive on that one.

Re: Birkhead Mountains Wilderness

I've been on the Uwharrie trail just south of the Birkheads. It's much more open with very little understory for much of the trail. Age is about the same. I've heard it's easy to get lost in the Birkheads. Apparently, there is some old growth but it's not a very significant amount.
