Thank you for this incredibly well-written account of your trip! I love the boreal forests and greatly appreciate you taking the time to measure some often neglected species in our big tree lists. Jack pine is one of my favorite species but I have seen very little of it. The tallest and largest were in Michigan, USA but I have no records of them. You may like their sub-tropical twin, sand pine Pinus clausa if you ever get to see them. One race is serotinous as well.
