Re: Northern Long Island Ramble

Brian,

We'd love for you to join the group of us who know Dan. He's one of a kind as you'll learn.

Re: New Member from Lumberland New York

Brian,

You've found your new home. As you have time, I encourage you to explore the wealth of tree information and feel free to communicate with other members either through the email provision of the BBS or separately. The depth of NTS data is bottomless.

Re: New Member from Lumberland New York

Ca you give the members a quick bio, and please tell everyone about your association with American Forests. Thanks and welcome ...

Re: Pisgah National Forest, Davidson River Area, NC

Brian, Your Rucker compilations have great potential value to show the contribution of outstanding sites to climate mitigation. I'm presently involved with several scientists writing a paper on the carbon sequestration performance of Mohawk Trail State Forest. I'll talk to you about this through reg...

Re: NY Rucker Height Index

Erik, Elijah, Brian, Dale, Michael, etc., We've got to find a way to more broadly publish these results. They are a goldmine of information and they scream out to be consolidated into an online booklet that can have a secure home in academia as well as on the NTS BBS. I can think of two academic ins...

Re: Undiscovered Old-Growth near Woodward PA??

Erik, I understand where you are coming from. The late Gordon Whitney's exhaustive research certainly supports 200-foot tall white pines in Colonial times, and I think a good case can be made for around 220 feet as the upper limit. That said, as we so often see, ostensibly reliable sources are often...

Re: Undiscovered Old-Growth near Woodward PA??

If anyone knows about today's tall pines today in PA, it is Dale Luthringer, environmental education specialist at Cook Forest, PA. Dale's your man. However, I wouldn't hold out much hope for near-200 foot white pines. The 184-foot Longfellow Pine is the best we've done in the Northeast. It grew in ...
