You will see some names listed as measurers you will not recognize. They are Bob Hannah, Liz Snider, Jim Bowen, Allen Waldron, Dan Cooley, Tom Oxley, and Craig Mint...

Cemetery trees

Steve: I agree on the single stem Yew- I have never seen one with that form. Is the Alder the European species A. glutinosa?

Re: Updating the MAX list

Ed, ENTS; I have started using the “ Tree Measurement Reporting Form: supplied by ED to develop a Maximum Dimension List for West Virginia. My goal is to have it done sometime in June.

Re: Alaska's Big Tree List!

Don: Congratulations for tackling the effort to get the Alaska State list up to snuff. I especially liked your inclusive links to pertinent tree information.

Re: Lake Lure & Chimney Rock

Jess, James: I noticed that the USDA plants lists the C. pisifera as excluded. I not sure what that means but the description of C. densiflora or Hinoki false cypress seems similar. Before I learned this species i would mix it up with Eastern Arborvitae, but the reddish tinged bark and the cones whi...

Re: Cannibis in our National Forests

James: After the big flood of 1985 in West Virginia the South Branch Valley of the Potomac had 100's of acres scoured along the river which must have produced perfect conditions for the seeds laying dormant to take hold and produce wonderous crops for several years.

Re: MD swamp white oak

Doug/Ellen, ENTS: I agree that the bark does not look quite right for Swamp White Oak. Probably acorns were not available, but I use the long stalks(2") of the acorns for the SWO as a definitive characteristic. I happen to be a native of that area and can assure you that oak ID is interesting becaus...
