Re: The Blake House Sycamore.

James, There's a fat sycamore behind the independent movie store on Charlotte Street and one by Jus' Running on Merriman. Neither are huge but definitely good sized. The one by the video store might hit 13' or 14' in girth. I doubt either is beyond 100' in height. You've already measued the other on...

Re: New User in Asheville

Will, WOW! Those are some fantastic red oaks!!! That has to be the one I'm thinking of. It looks about right but not exactly as I remember. It's been a while and at a different time of year. These oaks are gorgeous. My have-to-see list just keeps getting longer. I hadn't come across any of these oak...

Re: New User in Asheville

Will, I remember it as being on McKee Branch but may have misremembered. It could be on Hemphill Bald. It is about 20' circumference with a slight curvature near the base, then straight up and thick! I've only visited it twice and it's been a while. It's my favorite non-tuliptree in the Smokies. I'l...

Re: Roadside Hawthorn

The hawthorns are 2/10 mile south of Glassmine overlook. They're only about 30 yards apart and right next to the trail. The local MTS guidebook actually mentions the larger one as "the mother of all hawthorns". I want to revisit them as well.

Re: Virginia Kendall Park, part of CVNP

Steve,
I believe Stebbins Gulch has a nice Hemlock population. Are they still doing well in Ohio? I remember a nice beech/maple area at Holden as well as an enormous red oak and a 365 year old white oak.

Will,
I'm sorry if I misquoted you. I'll look into the 440.

Re: New User in Asheville

I was just thinking of the beast not too far from the Caldwell Fork trail. It's in more of a Hemlock dominated forest. Spots with greater poplutations I've found are near Balsam Mtn. Road on I believe Littlr Cataloochie Trail and above the YMCA Blue Ridge Assembly in Blacak Mountain, heading toward ...

Re: Virginia Kendall Park, part of CVNP

I grew up in northeast Ohio, but didn't take advantage of the park system as much as I should have. I'm amazed at the quality of trees in the area. I got back there in 2007 to run the Burning River race through much of the Metroparks and CVNP. Have you done any measurements at the Holden Arboretum? ...

Re: Thomas G. Brown: Believing Science

Science does require a trust in the scientists. However, science is all about disproving or supporting former ideas. Experiments must be repeated to prove that the results are true. If different results occur, we check to see if the data and controls are accurate. Disproving a "scientific fact" is a...

Re: Roadside Hawthorn

They're right on the trail. When the road opens up, I'll try to get you an exact location.
