Re: Hello from Northern Ohio

Fred-

Let me know when you'd like to visit the Carolina hemlocks, or other sites in NE Ohio. Tuesdays and Sundays are the best for me. You can e-mail me at srgalehouse@gmail.com, or call 440-835-1253.

Re: Interesting Article on Vapors from Conifer Forests

Jason- This is a very interesting topic. I can attest to the forests of the North being more aromatic than in the temperate areas, but also each genus seems to have a distinct scent---pines, spruce, firs, arborvitae, tamarack, junipers, and hemlock are all distinguishable and different, and there ar...

Re: Recommendations for range finder with an inclinometer

Jason- I would still recommend the 'cheap and cheerful' approach and get a used Nikon 440, which has a more precise cone of vision, and either a Brunton/Suunto clinometer or a clino app for the I-phone. The advantage of having a mechanical clino is that it can be mounted together in the laser in the...

Re: Lurking for months and finally joined :)

NTS, Jason- I had the pleasure of meeting up with one of the newest members, Jason Baker, at Rocky River Reservation in Cleveland----we had a nice hike, talked about trees(and how to measure them) and many other subjects. It's nice to have another NTS member in NE Ohio; I'm looking forward to future...

Re: Carolina hemlock genetics study

Will- I'm not sure if it's good or bad that these hemlocks are within a national park, as far as treating them if HWA arrives to the area. I've let my pesticide applicator license lapse, but would be glad to get re-certified to treat these trees. So far in northern Ohio HWA has been confined to prod...

Re: Carolina hemlock genetics study

Jason-

Yes, that's the implication. At the very least the trees at Ritchie Ledges will likely be among the last of the species to be exposed to HWA due to their relative remoteness.

Re: Spruce and Firs Native to Ohio?

Jason- Neither spruce or fir is currently native to Ohio, though both are likely found in fossil pollen records. The conifer genera native to Ohio today are: Pinus (4 species), Larix, Thuja, Juniperus (2 species), Tsuga ( 1, possibly 2 species) and Taxus . I've heard of a naturalized stand of balsam...
