Re: Largest elm in NY

Just discovered another huge elm. It's not as big as this Johnstown elm was (RIP) but it's very healthy and in a place where they probably protect it from dutch elm beetles. It's in front of Crailo, the 350 year old house in Rensselaer, home of the Van Rensselaer family in the 1600's. It's right in ...

Re: American Hornbeam

Does anybody feel like measuring this tree again? Every 10 years it gets dropped from the list unless it gets remeasured, due to the American Forestry Association's 10 year rule. The tree was last officially measured in 2010 (see thread) and even though it took many years for NY to get it listed nat...

Re: Tuliptrees in northeastern NY

Here are the two 12-year-old tuliptrees I planted in the Adirondacks one of which is 32 feet tall and just passed a telephone pole this year. The other one is around 25 feet. No other tuliptrees within many many miles of here.

Re: American Hornbeam

NY started a new list, I think they lost the old list, maybe somebody retired or died or something. The new list has small trees that the same 2 or 3 guys found within the past year or 2.

Re: American Hornbeam

The new list from American Forests has a picture of my American Horbeam which has been national champion on and off since 1975.

It's 83 feet tall which is unheard of for this species. Here is the pic:

Re: Tuliptrees in northeastern NY

Tivoli and Bard College are roughly the same latitude as Kingston. You assume that climate is the limiting factor and there has to be a sudden change of climate to end the range. In the case of tuliptrees, this is obviously not the case since there are planted specimens growing in Albany and Saratog...

Re: Tuliptrees in northeastern NY

No, it's just south of Kingston. I-87 northbound and southbound, both sides of the highway, look around mile marker 83.0 to 83.5 there are tons of tuliptrees there.
