Re: Rucker Comparisons

This next list is for the Eastern US Rucker. I do not know that these are all current as some measurers have not been posting recently. This is the best that I can come up with at this time. I've gone over all of the posts and consulted the Maxlist and various other state maxlists. I do know of a co...

Re: Daily digests

Kouta,

I haven't been receiving the daily digests either. I just signed up for them a few weeks ago but have yet to receive one.
Non-Americans are very important to the site, especially those with your knowledge. I will begin to use metric on my posts. It's a far, far better system anyway.

Re: Biltmore Estate Trees

I measured a bit along the entrance road and got a few updates in the gardens. Some trees are still growing and some are shrinking. Unfortunately, the fine European larches are dying. One looks completely dead and the other is very nearly dead and has lost a bit of height. I located two more on my i...

Re: Mountains-to-Sea Trail

Bob,

I may try to make contact with them the next time I go. They probably know their formal gardens pretty well but those trees are not that tall. The entrance is where most of the good stuff is.

Re: Cherry Patch Pond, Lake Placid, NY

Elijah,

I just came across the Adirondack research listing. I’d never seen it before. I’ll update the Dacks in a couple of days. 130’ tamarack? Wowzers!

Re: Cherry Patch Pond, Lake Placid, NY

Elijah, I haven't come across any 100 foot balsam firs. As far as I can tell, that blows away the old record of 95.6', also in the Dacks. The tamarack is tall as well. I seem to recall another tall tamarack reported on in the last couple of years but I don't know that it was that tall. You may have ...

Re: Robert H. Treman State Park

Elijah, That is an impressive looking gorge! The waterfall rocks and the trees and herb layers rock. The red hickory is a state record. If you get the chance, could you look over New York's individual sites. I noticed I'd put the red in the state Rucker but failed to update the Treman site until tod...

Re: Rucker Comparisons

I just wanted to add some thoughts on where I think the Megasite Ruckers are heading. I'm going to refrain from comment on The Emerald Necklace and Mary-Del-Penn, as I haven't surveyed forest in those domains with the exception of North Chagrin. GSMNP easily has the highest Rucker, despite being sma...

Re: Rucker Comparisons

Elijah, Thanks for getting the numbers together! I saw that numbers were pretty up to date for New York. I wasn't going to start there because you and Erik have been all over updating New York and you've been busy with Virginia as well over the past few years. This project has been so much fun, but ...

Re: Douglas Fir, A-B Tech, Asheville, NC

George,
I haven’t been back to get a girth. It’s likely in the ballpark of 7’ cbh. We have a giant sequoia east of Asheville, that has some girth, likely 8 1/2’. The western species that rocks is Calocedrus decurrans. They get quite large here.
