Hello from Northern Ohio

I am not a big tree hunter per se, like many of you, but I have been enjoying reading some of your stories the last few days. Steve Galehouse told me about this site a number of years ago (I have known Steve for years), and I came, set up a username, and then forgot all about it. Well I finally made it back here, and thought I should say hello, and introduce myself. I did go out one day last year with Lisa Bowers, who is administrator of Ohio's Big Tree program for ODNR/Division of Forestry, and helped her measure trees here in north central Ohio, including the large American Chestnut that has been discussed here several times.

I am a pest specialist with the State of Ohio, and at times get to spend time hiking the forests of Ohio doing pest surveys. I get to see amazing trees all the time, but don't currently have any of the equipment to measure them. Hemlocks are a passion of mine, and after reading Steve's posts about the Carolina hemlocks here in Ohio, I am dying to see them. Steve, if you are reading this, I would love to talk to you about them.

Re: Hello from Northern Ohio

Thanks for the kind welcome all! Steve, I will be in touch. Thanks for the tip Jason. I live in Erie county, not too far from Sandusky/Cedar Point, and I have discovered and surveyed virtually every stand of hemlock in Erie and Lorain counties, as well as many in Lake county, and most in the Mohican area south of us. I have spent some time in the Cuyahoga metroparks, as well as the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, but I have many more to explore in your home county.
