Re: Zoar Valley Update

Brian, I wondered about Ohio, but I just can't find its 160' sycamore! Can you point me to the right thread or trip report?

Re: Zoar Valley Update

Elijah, I had the same thoughts on my mind on my last visit to Zoar. How many tree species? How many canopy species vs species on the tree/shrub threshold that do qualify as understory trees in Zoar? How many woody plant species in all including low shrubs? I started putting together a list last nig...

Re: Zoar Valley Update

In case anyone missed what happened with Elijah's latest post- that tallest tulip is the same as the one Bob and Dale measured to 156' during the "tally in the valley." It joins the two south branch trees, and the tallest Sycamore, to bring Zoar up to 4 trees over 160'. Speaking of which, I have a s...

Re: St. Paul's Cemetery, Hancock, NY

Interesting that the pines were slightly less tall on this occasion. It has been a particularly dry stretch of weeks- tree limbs and twigs are known to subtly become more droopy or more erect due to changes in water pressure within the cambium cells. There are some time-lapse videos online of trees ...

Re: Rucker Comparisons

Brian, a couple others:

129.2' 39.39m silver maple Acer saccharinum Pearson Metropark, OH, Danielson
121.3' 36.98m black birch Betula lenta Welwyn Preserve, NY, Danielson

Great to see all these numbers in one place.

Re: New mission?

Hi Bob, I do think this is an important mission to be pursuing. I was not able to do as much tree measuring this last season as I had planned and would have liked to. This was largely due to a transition into full-time-ish ecology-oriented work, whereas previously this has been something I've pursue...

Re: Rucker Comparisons

Hi Brian, Just curious- is the intent to edit and update the individual state posts as time permits? I'm just noticing that in some cases the numbers used are from the older posts for a given site, rather than their most recent numbers, like Ragged Mountain in VA. I realize there's a lot of material...

Re: Letchworth State Park

Elijah, This is a fantastic outcome to the work you've done at Letchworth in the last several years. I had imagined that Letchworth probably matched or exceeded Zoar's big tree potential in presettlement times, but had not imagined it would be so close to it in the present day! Interesting to see th...

Re: Can someone help me ID this plant I found at Spirit Creek State Forest

Looks like the basal rosette of a Nicotiana species.
