Stony Pt. Campground

A few weeks ago I took a trip to the Chippewa National forest. I had a handout about some of the Old Growth areas of the Chippewa and I knew I had to visit some of them. One of the places listed was Stony Point Campground on Leech Lake. It has a nice little interprative trail. Its a small area of ol...

New MN Red Pine Champ., Lost 40 area, MN

Last fall I drove up to the Lost Forty area in northern MN, near the town of Blackduck to take a gander at some old growth trees. The area was missed by loggers due to surveying error. I know there has been talk of this place in the past. Minnesotas former largest red pine was located in Itasca Stat...

Re: Southern Red Cedar?

I went back and looked at this tree to confirm species. I went with my National Audubon Society Field Gudie to North American Trees, I'm gonna go ahead and confirm this as a Southern Red Cedar. I took the smallest possibel girth I could find because it was so misshapen. I'm still kind of in the dark...

Cat Island Bald Cypress

Has anyone ever visited this tree? I wonder where it stackes up volume wise against some of the other large bald cypress's.

Southern Red Cedar?

I saw this tree about a month ago while riding my bike around Ocean Springs and I knew I had to come back and measure it. I've been living in Ocean Springs for a couple of months now and have been impressed with the trees in down here. Tons of huge live oaks. The tree I measured today was a southern...

Old cottonwood champ

I found this picture of the old National Champ Eastern Cottonwood. It was located near Seward, Nebraska but was "laid out in two" in 2007 by wind or lightning. Two trees side by side it looks like but still impressive. 36' 9" dbh 85' tall 107 average crown spread according to an article online.
