Re: Manatees, Springs. and some Florida trees

Larry: Can i assume that the larger examples of the Sand Live Oaks are found farther away from the immediate coast? I saw many within 100 yards of the water but nothing much bigger then the ones i measured. Would this species also be called "Goat Oak?" You maeasured a Sparklebery in Alabama with a 6...

Larry, NTS:
I had a chance to measure the Loblolly pictured in your post. 189" CBH x 145.3' on 3/13/17. I believe Will has tape dropped that tree.

Re: map of ecoregions within U.S.

Re: Tree Maximums - Genus of the Week: Betula (Birch)

Bob : After looking at your spread sheet for Black Birches I realize I lacked in consistently in naming the location. I can easily correct that. I can also supply most of the CBH measurements, plus any GPS coordinates, elevation, for the site and some of the individual trees. Great List! Let me know...
