Re: Europe vs. the eastern US - comparing tree heights

Brian,

Nothing wrong to compare the two Cercis spp. Similarly you could say, Abies nordmanniana and A. balsamea are not comparable because the former is a temperate species and the latter a boreal one. It was just a note about differing habitats.

Re: Europe vs. the eastern US - comparing tree heights

Thanks Brian! I updated the tables in the first message of this thread. Some notes: For the tallest Acer pseudoplatanus I accepted Karlheinz' measurement (done with TruPulse 200X) as it is likely more accurate than Sisley's. For Cercis siliquastrum , I accepted the second tallest tree as Spain is ce...

Re: Europe vs. the eastern US - comparing tree heights

Thanks for updates, Brian!

Where you got 42.5m for Acer pseudoplatanus from? I am aware of 41,5 m only.

Could you give the references for these American trees:
Crataegus mollis - 46.3'
Quercus palustris - 136.4'
Carya illinoiensis - 157.5'

Re: World Rucker

Brian, I am not sure but I thought the A. procera was a tan measurement. One reference I found: Van Pelt's book "Forest Giants of the Pacific Coast" says: "A beautiful grew near Harmony Falls, northeast of the mountain, before being destroyed by the 1980 eruption. This grove contaidend an individual...

Re: Asia Rucker

Brian, You must read the same page further. Jess Riddle says: Populus deltoides--161.7' (same AR tree) Prunus serotina--153.3' (Smokies, where else) http://www.ents-bbs.org/viewtopic.php?f=144&t=6106&start=10 As I said you get the European species records from this page: https://www.monumentaltrees....

Re: Asia Rucker

I made such a generic comparison here:
