Re: Pisgah National Forest, Davidson River Area, NC

Twin Falls, on the Buckhorn Gap Trail, has mostly young tulips growing at the bases of two waterfalls. The waterfalls are on separate creeks but converge in a fairly rich spot. Most of the tulips appear to be in the 55-60 year range with a couple of them topping 150'. An older tulip and white oak re...

Re: Walker Cove Big Ivy/Coleman Boundary NC

I checked out the tallest white pine groves and got up a little above them to find some impressive scarlet oaks. I also entered the young white pine tract with super growth rates. This grove appears to be thinning out and slowing down in growth. They're spaced pretty close to each other so competiti...

Re: Pisgah National Forest, Davidson River Area, NC

I did a hike on Butter Gap Trail and then bushwhacked to Searcy Creek Road, which looked very promising on satellite. It appeared to have an abundance of rich cove forest. Searcy Creek does have an abundance of rich cove forest but it also has had a large cut from 20-25 years ago. Most of the other ...

Re: Western States Rucker Comparisons

Thanks, Turner! I've done what I can but it has been a bit overwhelming at times. I know I've missed some numbers. The good news is I'm still finding more and more numbers in odd places. Europe is a bit daunting. Monumental Trees is loaded with entries.

Re: New World Record For White Fir

Duncan, Thanks for the clarification. I did find a note for it being at Cherokee Creek. I went through thousands of posts, so I may have written it down out of context. I'm trying to keep up with your Western records with a few from the East. It isn't easy but I suspect I'll have one or two by Thank...

Re: New World Record For White Fir

Michael, I cannot seem to locate the post, but when doing research, I came across an entry for an 80m white fir that you and Duncan had found. There's a chance I screwed something up somewhere. I have a feeling it may have been posted for a possible maximum and not an actual measurement. Either way,...

Kiawah Island

Kiawah Island is a barrier island just south of Charleston, SC. It is a private island and it is fairly developed but it differs from many of the barrier islands around Charleston. Some forests have been leveled for golf courses but much forest remains. None of it is old growth but there is quite a ...

Johns Island Presbyterian Church

The church is located just a few miles down the road from the Angel Oak. The church was originally built in 1719, with a major addition in 1823. The cemetery has just a handful of trees but the trees are impressive. A double trunked J. silicicola rises to 60.3'. Sand live oak generally grows on the ...

Re: Angel Oak

I wasn't able to finagle a circumference this year despite two attempts. I did get to do a rough volume measurement. After conversing with Will Blozan, he informed me that they had to make an adjustment to the out of roundness of many of the limbs. I came up with a figure of .91 to apply to the bran...
