Re: New England Trip

Hi Tom, Gifford Woods is really convenient, as it is just off Route 4, the great East West road in central Vermont. As I mentioned in my post, there are two sides to it. The interpretive trail is great, with some highly polished old growth specimens that really demonstrate OG characteristics, a snap...

Re: Elder's Grove, in Paul Smith's NY

The grove is owned by Paul Smith's College, which has a forestry school. A faculty member studied the grove, tagged the pines, etc. http://www.adirondacklifemag.com/blo...-tallest-tree/ and http://www.adirondacklifemag.com/blo...first-forests/ provide some nice context. Of course, I'm sure which is ...

Elder's Grove, in Paul Smith's NY

twisted crack.jpg tree goddess.jpg looking up.jpg results of microburst, 7-22-12.jpg I went to the 1675 Grove, or the Elder's Grove, in Paul Smith's NY on July 28, 2012. We lost one of the big ones during last week's microburst. The rest of the trees are standing tall and looking very impressive. I...

Re: Lake Champlain Valley and whopper cottonwoods

I drove the new bridge from Crown Point New York to Chimney Point Vermont last weekend. It's a brand new and attractive structure, engineered to last 100 years and outlive the predecessor bridge, which didn't even last 80 years. You can see the new bridge here http://www.champlainbridgecommunity.org...

Re: El Yunque National Forest Quarters

El Yungue is fun, I was, of course, searching for large trees the entire time I was there. Nice place, fun, fascinating, but I couldn't find anything that looked bigger than 10' cbh. Going back this christmas.

Re: Moravia, NY, Cottonwood

Probably one of the kings of the finger lakes region! I'll bet it's less than 200 years old though! From its wide crown it looks to have grown in cleared land, not a forest. We've seen other cottonwoods in the north east on that scale, that appear to have been planted or grown after the great forest...

Re: Lake Champlain Valley and whopper cottonwoods

Very nice tree. The largest Cottonwood I've seen in Vermont is 20 feet in circ, with the same nice proportions as the OMG cottonwood. This VT cottonwood is the front yard tree from an 1820's house, so probably around 200 years old. But your find blows it away! But in a nice, peaceful, tree hugging w...

Re: In This State: Charlie Cogbill indeed sees ...

Pretty cool read. He's an important person in my mind, as he surveyed the old growth forest on Lord's Hill that I have posted about. He's also responsible for identifying Cambridge Natural Area and Dorthothy Canfield Fisher pines as second growth forest. Maybe 'twas the witness trees helped him suss...
