Re: Rucker Comparisons

Brian,

I noticed you E. hemlock for the Northeast. Dale Luthringer's last measurement of the Seneca Hemlock in Cook was 147.5 feet.

Re: Eastern White Pine (Pinus strobus) 12x150 Club

Elijah,

Glad to hear it. Grandmother deserves to be a 150-footer. Did I ever tell you that the SUNY foresters there once listed its height as 175 feet? Tape and clinometer measurement as I'm sure you would have guessed.

Above ground volume, its dry biomass, and the carbon component of the biomass is the purpose of a model developed in 2005.

Re: Rucker Comparisons

Ents, Today Jared Lockwood and I went up stream on little Broad Brook to update the sites RHI. Screen Shot 2020-05-16 at 6.26.10 PM.png This is basically our backyard. I expect that we can improve on white oak and maybe white ash. Oh yes, the pignut hickory noe has a name. It's Miss Piggy. Bob

Bryan,

We have a lot more Massachusetts sites than those listed. I’ll post them in the next few days to keep your good work rolling. BTW, the WP for MTSF is 176.2 feet now.
