Re: Gifford Woods State Park Aug. 22, 2012

DSC_0491.JPG I brought my camera to Gifford Woods yesterday, June 15, and went to the forest--not the interpretive trail on the west side of Route 1oo, but the 7 acres of unmarked woods on the other side. A few steps off the pavement and the mystery unfolds. I wasn't measuring for tree height, but ...

Re: Richmond: Hollywood Cemetery

Here are some photos, of the southern pine species that I can't identify, tulip poplar, sycamore, and bald cypress. Nothing spectacular, just nice trees in a beautiful spot, about 150 years old. Really, an amazing scenic spot, overlooking the James River. A must see for Ents visiting Richmond VA.

Re: Richmond: Hollywood Cemetery

I went there on Christmas day, will post my photos in a few days. Beautiful trees in this park. Here's what I think, not a one of them was planted/seeded prior to1849. Great examples of how large a tree can grow in 160 years. Tulips, Bald Cypress, one really phat sycamore.

Re: How old are these huge Beech trees?

There is an AMerican Beech in the yard of a house my parents own. The house dates to 1880 so I assume the Beech is that age as well. It is one of the largest trees in the city of Rochester, NY. I have measured the circumfrance at breast height to 218 inches. On the flat pavement of the city, I was a...

Re: Pine Plains Sycamore Report

Is it too much to ask for directions? This is not far from my usual ramblings and I'd love to see it. If I can drag my family through the Pittsfield MA 'hood to see that huge urban cottonwood, we can definately detour through pine plains the next time we go to grandma's!

Re: Crane Beach

Hey Bob, since you are a fan of the trustee's sites, have you seen the swamp white oak at Naumkeag in Lennox? It's historic to that site, but also really big. The guy who built the mansion had lunch underneath it in the 1860's, and it was still there three years ago. Check it out.

Re: Big Tree hunter shares his findings...

Of course the guy from Jersey is named Johnny D. Great collection of wonderful trees. Those are old trees in communities that have been anglicized for 400 years--so it is hard to distinguish "old growth" from really old trees that may or may not have grown up from land that was affected by...

Amazing Place! Did you take any other pictures? The old cedar T.J. planted?

Re: Jake and Joe, MTSF, MA

I'm so happy you'll be going to Woodstock. Will you check on some of older hemlocks in Marsh Billings? Hey, on the way there stop at Gifford and settle my score with Tom. I think it has been awhile since a reliable measurement has been taken of those old maples.

Re: Gifford Woods State Park Aug. 22, 2012

That trail is great, isn't it? It must have been a fun project for some tree lover. I've been driving that stretch of road since 1986. I've walked it, ran it, cycled it and never saw the big grove until I went into the underbrush. You can't see it from the road. Now I've got to go back with a tape m...
