Re: A Nice Blue Ash - SW Ohio

Erik, I agree, I think it's pretty old. That gnarly branch at about 6' above midslope is extremely unusual. The crown is fairly complex and the bark has that shaggy look. The trees around it are all younger, although there are a few old white oaks at the top of the slope and farther into the woodlan...

A Nice Blue Ash - SW Ohio

NTS, I first noticed this blue ash a few years ago and I walk by it occasionally on a trail by the Little Miami River. The tree is on the slope above the river. Today I went over and took some measurements. Blue ash are uncommon here, and this is by far the biggest one that I've seen in Ohio. I've m...

Re: Hermosa Creek Trail 2015 Part II Swampy Creek

NTS,

In my post last November I mentioned some big Doug firs that were down at Hermosa Creek.

I dug up a photo of one of them:

Re: Largest Tree in New England

Bravo Bob! Nice looking report. I like that layout.

I really enjoyed my visit to Pinchot last year. The sycamore on the other side of the clearing ain't half bad either.

Re: Guided Hike at Montpelier - THIS Sunday

Hi Bob, Yep, a word document with embedded images is perfect. JPG and PNG files both work well. There is also an option to select a featured image which is the one that shows under the title at the top of the article, and the featured image also displays when sharing the article through social media...

Guided Hike at Montpelier - THIS Sunday

NTS, Journalist/Writer Julia Travers ( https://jtravers.journoportfolio.com/ ) has written an article for my forestreporter.com website, about a guided hike through the James Madison Landmark Forest. The hike takes place this Sunday. I wish I could make it! Even if you can't make it or live too far ...

Re: Donaldson's Woods (IN)

Rand,

Wow, nice looking cedars, those are much more graceful/stately than what I typically see.

Great eclipse photo too! I wish I could have seen the totality.

Re: Long Point State Park

Erik,

Wow, that forest-grown red oak! What charisma!

It's cool that it has several substantial black cherries. I usually see the really nice ones as just one nice black cherry in a mixed forest.

Re: More Exceptional Trees From Redwood National Park

I'm beginning to realize what it's "more about" isn't really documenting. Not for the redwoods. As long as climate stays somewhat stable, people don't cut too many, and seeds keep germinating, these forests should flourish. I was working today on an arbor nailing slats and screen for a landscape, a...
