Re: Howland's Island

Yes! now that's what I'm talking about! and right along my east west migration route. That red oak is about as "girthy" a tree we get in western NY, excepting our friends the cottonwood!

Re: Washington Grove City Park

Tom, I dunno, maybe you can hop a greyhound for an afternoon and we can measure the place together. I'll let you know when I'm going to be there next.

Re: Washington Grove City Park

I don't have too much to add to that. I plan on measuring a black oak there--the largest. I used my not-so-trusty stick method to get some heights in the 120's, but more work needs to be done in that department. The oaks are black, white and red. There are also some nice maples. I did a ring count o...

Washington Grove City Park, NY

This terrific urban old growth spot now has a face book page. Many pictures that ENTS will recognize as fine old growth.

Re: What is "Sweet grass"?

Re: Acer Aspire One Netbook for Fieldwork

I do all my photoediting in Irfranview as well. We use the slide show feature a lot at school. For field work, if you want to talk to ...
