Re: Ohio record Tuliptree nominated today

Stefan, NTS- I entirely agree, the GPS co-ords of the measurement location should be part of the record for 'significant' trees. I have visited this tree several times over the years with Rand or Mark and independently, and each time I came up with a somewhat taller height from this location. I thin...

Re: The Galehouse Tuliptree

Matt-

Thanks for the tree!!! Maybe this Fall you could introduce me to my namesake!

I's been quite a while since I've been in the Hocking Hills area, and would love to return. Great finds.

Re: Everett Woods-154.5' sycamore, Ohio ht. record

Stefan, NTS- I agree the LiDAR hit for this tree is 144.34', and that it would be unlikely for it to increase 10' in four years, but that is with the assumption the 144.34' hit was the tallest part of the tree. I think Ohio LiDAR data is based on a 2 meter grid, so whatever the value is might not re...

Re: A nice sycamore in Elyria

NTS- I got back to this sycamore earlier this winter, and got a height of 105'; a large section of the top has broken off. It's girth is still impressive, especially for a single pith forest grown tree. Near this tree, also on the Black River floodplain, is a tulip at 147', which is the tallest I've...

Re: Ohio record Tuliptree nominated today

Stefan, NTS- Here are a couple of photos of the tall tulip showing the dead patch at the base of the trunk, with Matt Markworth in November 2013. tulip-Matt.jpg tulip-Matt2.jpg From this vantage point, somewhat downslope from Stefan's photos, Rand Brown and I were able to get a height of slightly mo...

Stefan-

I think the spot Rand and I got the 154.5' height was up the ravine 200-250' and slightly south of it's channel.

Stefan-

What height did you get for this tree? It is in an unusual location, competing for height with surrounding tulips. I thought it was interesting no other sycamores are in the immediate area.

Re: New Mission at Fort Hill, Ohio Takes Shape

NTS-

What a great sycamore, and a great site in general. I wish I has been able to make it down there. I'll certainly plan to get there in the future.

ENTS-

Old yellow birch becomes very different in bark characteristics as it ages as well, this photo from a tree in central Ontario.
