Re: Big Creek

Brian, Yes, definitely, we have to honor the wishes of the contributors. Maybe some sites could be given coded names - if that would be acceptable to the contributors who don't want exact locations given. The primary objective would be to provide a broad picture of what many of our forested sites ar...

Re: Pisgah National Forest, Davidson River Area, NC

Brian,

Good Grief! You smoke all of us these days. Incredible reports. The next tree to be named in the ENTS Grove in MTSF will be for you.

Re: Big Creek

Brian, Congratulations, another important post showing the exemplary performance of the Great Smoky Mountain cove forests. If you are able to confirm a 160-foot N. red oak, that would be very significant. The black birches certainly caught my attention. This winter I plan to coauthor a paper with Dr...

Re: New World Record For White Fir

Michael, Duncan, et al., The attachment is an adaptation to white fir of the general FIA-COLE volume-biomass model. Whether the model fits the Sierra Nevada white fir or not, I cannot say. The original data comes from the FIADB. The worksheet may have value in computing volume, biomass, and carbon e...

Revisiting the ENTS Grove.

Ents, Yesterday, Monica and I visited the ENTS Grove in MTSF.In the late 1990s, I named this swath of tall white pines in MTSF to honor Ents who were out measuring trees and compiling many of the individual tree and outstanding site records that we now enjoy. Two of the first Ents to be so honored w...

Re: New World Record For White Fir

Michael,

Congratulations. That trees like this can still be found continues to surprise me. It also affirms how truly challenging it is to cover the vast area representing the range of a species.

Re: Adirondack Life Article on Erik

Erik, and others. Very good article. Great job, Erik and team. Although I was sorry not to be there, it sounds like article captured the spirit of the group. The significance of the great Ampersand Pine deserves to be told through a variety of perspectives. However, I can't resist putting some numbe...

The complexities of biomass and carbon modeling

Ents, A paper co-authored by Dr. William Moomaw and Dr. Susan Masino and yours truly has been submitted to Frontiers, a publishing house for scientific papers. It has to go through a peer review, and I have no idea as to what the outcome of that will be. The paper is on the rates and amounts of carb...

Revisiting the black birch

Ents, Back in 2016, I started a project to gather height measurements on Betula lenta across as much of that species range, for which I could get data. I began the project because I was seeing the species locally achieving greater heights than the all the Internet and book sources that describe the ...
