Greetings from Tennessee!

My name is Aaron and I'm a climbing arborist in Nashville, TN with a passion for trees. I find myself around trees and in trees everyday and walking in the forest, gazing up in my free time. I am also beginning to facilitate recreational tree climbing. I love big trees, and it seems everyone here does too! Thanks to Patty Jenkins for pointing me in the direction of the Native Tree Society. Can't wait to get involved. Let me know if anybody is located near me!

Re: Alum Cave - GSMNP

Wow. About time I made it back to the smokies. Amazing...this website/blog is blowing my mind and I can't wait to start seeing some of these trees in person. Being a climber of course I am very interested in one day exploring some of these trees aerially...though I am sure opportunity is limited and these trees are very protected. Exciting stuff for a Nashvillian to read.

If anyone needs help in measuring or searching tennessee forests just let me know!

Re: Greetings from Tennessee!

We have a few really nice bur oaks here. Chinkapin oaks seem to be more common, and I've seen some hefty ones for sure! There are also a good number of shellbark hickories (we call them shagbark). I couldn't tell you about the other too. I haven't seen any that I know of.
