Bob,

I documented a site a couple of weeks ago that may very well be Delaware's TT super site. Is Neil interested in the top 5 girths as well? Where do I send the data?

George,

Ooh, exciting. Yes, please include height and girth for each tree, and lat and long for some point in the site. Please send the data to me. I'm consolidating it for Neil. Thanks so much.

James, Nice report. The Smokies sure have alot of tall trees. You are lucky to have a place like that nearby. I will be going to the Pascagoula Mgt. Area soon. I should have a nice report from there. Lots of big Cypress in there. I have to get that kayak first. Sometime in Feb. Larry

Larry,

Yes, the Smokies are awesome! This grove of tuliptrees is in the Green River gorge, located well outside the Smokies on the Blue Ridge Escarpment.

I hope you can get to Pascagoula before that hot Mississippi summer returns. Feb should be great. Pascagoula is one place I would like to see. But for now you are my eyes and ears, Larry!
