#1)  Bartholmew's cobble

Postby adam.rosen » Sat Jun 25, 2011 1:27 pm

I know that there have been some nice posts about the huge cottowood and it's smaller bretheren at Bartholomew's Cobble.  Well, for the trouble of two tick bites, I have some photos of that tree, as well as nice tulip tree that has been marked at the Cobble.  Bartholmew's Cobble is a very nice place to visit on the Northern Mass and Connecticut border, and I think the whole Route 7 corridor, from Connecticut to Pittsfield, is prime tree viewing territory.]adam next to cotton wood.jpg[/attachment]jpg[/attachment]

Here's me next to this wonderful tulip tree at the cobble.  Girth didn't get measure, but you've got 110 kilos for comparison.

And here is that whole Cottonwood, a tree that i know has been measured and get's checked in on. Wear your tick repellent!

And here I am with this wonderful cottonwood. I love this tree! Supposedly, one in Hubbarton VT is bigger, but someone will have to take me there. (400+ Points--in Vermont--Show me)

More of the tulip tree. What a beauty! Why does the trunk get scruffy at the base? 120 height was my estimate.

Lots of rare plants at the Cobble, such as "walking fern". And, you're right about the Rt. 7 valley from CT to Pittsfield as nice tree country- that's been my main turf for my pracitice of forestry for 38 years. I often visited the Cobble for pure pleasure while taking off my forester's hat. There's a nice network of trails there. One goes up to a hill top with a nice view all the way to Mt. Greylock, most of the hill side is still open pasture. I went up there once during deer shotgun season, thinking it would be safe since the property is posted against hunting, but alas, several hunters were there.

Thetulip is scruffy at the base because it's old.

   I've measured and photographed everyone of those trees. Gary Beluzo and I have all the Tuliptrees in that area in our database. There is an even more impressive Tuliptree in Bullard Woods than the one at the Cobble. Have you seen it?
