Re: Rocky River Reservation

The Rocky River is very scenic, and also has some very nice trees. Here are two photos from earlier in October.

Re: New Mission at Fort Hill, Ohio Takes Shape

Bob, Rand, Matt-

I'll do my best to get there, but I can't say for certain right now.

Re: A nice sycamore in Elyria

Larry-

They grow pretty fast; I would think this tree to be 150, 200 at most.

A nice sycamore in Elyria

NTS- Today I measured a very handsome single pith sycamore at Elywood Park in Elyria, Ohio. This tree, which is on the floodplane of the Black River, was 19' 1'' cbh by 102'---I'm sure it's taller than that, and I'll return after leaf drop to remeasure. This is by far the most massive single trunked...

Re: Top ten tallest by state

Bob, Matt, all-

Using LiDAR data for Sand Run I get 26 separate hits at 150' or more, so there are certainly more tall trees to find.

Re: Top ten tallest by state

Matt, Bob-

California Woods and Sand Run are the two best sites in Ohio for tall trees,
I think. California, being more southern, has a greater species diversity, but Sand Run has a taller canopy height.

Re: Top ten tallest by state

Bob-

I think I could find at least a dozen trees 150'-170' at Sand Run and many more 140' or taller, all tulips, but once we found what we thought to be the several tallest we concentrated on other species. I'll return this Fall and measure others.

Re: Top ten tallest by state

Bob-

Do you mean by individual trees or by species? Some of the Sand Run trees are the same individuals with measurements taken at different dates. 170.01 is the tallest Tulip, several others in the 160's.

Re: On the Hornbeam of a Dilemna - Need ID

NTS- The native hornbeam is seldom planted; the European hornbeam is a common ornamental. If the trees in question look to be in a planted area, and if they are pyramidal in habit, I'm sure they are Carpinus betulus. The European hornbeam can get much larger than the native as well, to 60' or more. ...

Re: OH State Champ N Red Oak

Hi Guy-

If you get back to re-climb the oak this summer, you might also want to visit this red oak, which is nearby, in Westlake. The Westlake tree is a single pith with a cbh of 21', if I recall correctly, and around 98' in height.
