Re: A local hemlock of note

I posted two more pictures from this area, using the panorama feature of my phone I could get almost the whole tree, and the perspective is a little funny. The one on the stream bank I photographed because I was interested in how its roots are buttressing the bank. The "giant" is interesti...

Re: A local hemlock of note

And finally, here is a neighbor, another hemlock just up the hill. Younger, but how much? Old enough to grow, get really tall, have no branches until 20 feet, and then old enough for a porcupine to exploit a basal scar (from some logging?) to build a home. Note all the freshly excavated material in ...

Re: A local hemlock of note

This image is blurry, but you can see at the bottom, the barbed wire is just lying there. My point is, when that wire came through, this tree was mature enough, with mature enough bark, to not grow around the barbed wire. I've actually never seen that happen before.

A local hemlock of note

This nice specimen is on a hill side in East montpelier. The area was cleared in the early 1800's, and the second growth dates from sometime after that. THere are mature hemlocks with branches that begin at around 20 feet. In parts of this area, the last logging was 40 or 50 years ago and decaying h...

Re: Typical age of 20" diam Hemlock in climax forest?

My little experience with old growth hemlock is that they are often larger, I don't know from crown architecture, but the growth patterns of those trees indicate that they did not grow up in an open field. If they are old growth, then they didn't get cut when the larger trees did. More likely, secon...

Re: Marsh-billings-Rockefeller National Historic Park Projec

Wow--I am so glad to hear about this project. I am also just, like, pleasantly shocked to see my intuition about the trees at Marsh Billings verified with data. Accounts of the park indicate that there were wonderful woods in the late 1800's and carriage rides through the woods were a treat. I've se...

Re: Gifford Woods State Park Aug. 22, 2012

Hi--I was in such a hurry--wanting to get those images up! I think I can resave with proper orientation in another program (irfranview) and then post. When I'm not in a hurry.
