#1)  Introduction of Jeremy Quirós

Postby Jeremy Quirós » Thu Apr 27, 2017 1:02 pm

This is my first time posting for the Eastern Native Trees Society site, I was pleased to learn of this site from my good friend Bart Bouricius, whom I came to know thanks to the interest we both have in Nature and especially our mutual friends the trees. I was born in Costa Rica and I live in a mountainous area belonging to the central valley. I am currently a graduate of the National Technical University of Costa Rica in Forest Management and Wildlife. I work at Juan Castro Blanco National Water Park and also on projects for the recovery of forests in surrounding areas with the National Technical University. I´m also an enthusiastic botanist, and I’ve been doing botanical inventories for 4 years in different places along Costa Rica. I hope my posts will be of benefit for you and if I can help you with information about plants or animals from Costa Rica I would love to help.

  Welcome aboard the NTS BBS. Bart is a friend of mine also. He has told us about your work. We're definitely impressed and look forward to your posts. We also hope to record your great tree discoveries in the Superlative Native Tree Database maintained by Virginia Tech Dendrology Dept.

Jeremy,

Congratulations on getting started.  I am anticipating your posts on the Mexican Elms, and am looking forward to my return to Costa Rica in August to hunt big trees together North of Zarcero and in Sarapiqui where you have located potential monster trees.  People should know that you have a really good eye for spotting trees of exceptional height and are also very impressive when it comes to making taxonomic ID's.
