Re: Just wanted to give an update...

Hey Brian,

Thanks for the feedback. I too had to remeasure, and I posted some of my new measurements. I've edited some of my posts in the Connecticut forum. That's why some of the comments seems out of place...but overall everything reads fine I think.

Re: Just wanted to give an update...

Thanks, Bob. That means a lot. Just a run down of some issues: The Mt. Laurel TT (Fairfield) was 148' measured with Prostaff and clinometer, not 152' as I previously reported. So unfortunately Fairfield is no longer in the 150+ club. The great Allens Meadows Tree, which is one of the most impressive...

Just wanted to give an update...

My fellow eNTS, I've been posting more frequently lately, and my posts have included measurements from an instrument, a hypsometer, which I believed was accurate. However, I recently switched back to the old ProStaff + Clinometer combo, and it looks like the hypsometer might have been inflating some...

Re: Requiem for an old field tree

Wow, what a waste of an amazing tree. Sorry to hear about the lot by your old home.

Re: Far Mill River, Stratford, CT

I wish I could have seen the Cathedral Pines but it sounds like they fell long before I was interested in forestry. Gold's Pines in Cornwall is nice little hike though.

Re: Greenwich, CT Sites

Bob, I would be interested. Can we discuss this via email when you get a chance? Joshua, please update us on those tulips in Sharon when you get a chance. If they are over 130, then I don't see why Northern CT can't have a 145' tree, maybe even higher. Recently I hit up Pootatuck SF (New Fairfield) ...

Re: Modeling the Pinchot

Here's a link. http://oak.conncoll.edu:8080/notabletrees/ViewTreeData.jsp?selected=9001 Definitely some buttressing on that big branch, but it looks like the tree passes the single pith test. Measuring the tree should be easy. It is right by a little restaurant called the Sycamore Drive Inn, so you ...

Re: Modeling the Pinchot

Amazing. Lots of fond memories of this tree. It was probably the first big tree I visited.

Have you heard of the big sycamore at the intersection of 53 and 302? In Bethel. It is just a class below the Pinchot and Pine Plains trees. It is 7.3' thick.

Re: Greenwich, CT Sites

Thanks, Bob! It does seem like there are tall tulips in quite a few places. Here's what I've found: Southeastern Fairfield County (Trumbull, Shelton) is tall tulip country, of course. However, Wilton may be the tall tulip center of CT, believe it or not. I ascribe this to the large ridge on the West...

Re: Modeling the Pinchot

2,000 cubic feet? That's amazing. If I remember correctly, some of the huge Smokies trees 3,000 cubic foot range. I never would have guessed this tree is so big.
