Re: Laurel Fork Heritage Preserve, SC

Hey Brian, Nice photos and account of our trip. One small (of course, pertaining to filmy ferns) correction is that the filmy fern we were viewing was either Trichomanes boschianum or T. petersii, both have the bulk of their range in North America. Jess and I were also discussing the nearby occurren...

Re: Cutting edge application of remote sensing to conservati

Thanks Jess! This inspires me to up my LiDAR processing game!

BTW, are any PA NTS using the LiDAR data from that state?

Re: Revisiting the tree dimension index

Jess, Thanks for doing some needed testing of methods for scoring big trees. One question I have is how less-exceptional trees than those found in Tsuga search would fare with the diameter squared approach? Would a diameter squared situation tend to over-score shorter individuals or species? Just a ...

Re: Smith Falls State Park

Jess, Fantastic report. I think you could put together a number of your site reports into an impressive, useful, and popular (among naturalists) document/book. Bart, Speculating about a pre-human time in the prairies of North America is interesting. Knowing that humans have been on those prairies fo...

Re: Mountains-to-Sea Trail

Hey Brian, Thanks for the clarification. I had forgotten that the MST had decided on a fairly ridiculous route through Cherokee and the Tuckasegee River valley rather than the more realistic route along the Parkway in Jackson County. You could add the Mingus Creek numbers Jess has put up, but I guar...

Re: Mountains-to-Sea Trail

Brian,

It's worth noting that the Mountains-to-Sea Trail goes through some great big/tall tree territory in the Smokies including Pole Road Creek, Chasteen Creek, Enloe Creek and Hyatt Creek. All of those areas would add notable species maxima to your list.

Re: Videos of Old-Growth Oak Forest on Holston Mountain, TN

Neil, I didn't end up doing much age work there, but finding trees in the 250 age range is easy in that area. If looking for a dendro site for oaks or mesophytic species like birch, maple, ash, or poplar, Holston Mountain is an incredible site. About 400 acres of old-growth has been documented on Ho...

Re: Virgin rainforest near Singapore

Shorea,

Gorgeous photos. What a treasure. Having natural areas near cities make them much more livable in my estimation.

Thanks for sharing. Makes me want to return the SE Asia.

Josh
