Re: Robert H. Treman State Park

Brian, Thanks. It’s a beautiful place, likely with a good bit of old growth forest. I’ve read through your lists and have no real gripes about anything. Some numbers are outdated, but not by any considerable amount. I think having everything in one place is very helpful. Almost all of my measurement...

Re: Cherry Patch Pond, Lake Placid, NY

Brian, The Tamarack in Newcomb was 131’ as of last July. I’ll probably remeasure it next month. For the past three or four years I’ve kept a spreadsheet containing all 140’+ White Pines growing in Huntington Forest, which is where the Tamarack is. Huntington has the tallest White Spruce I’ve found i...

Re: Robert H. Treman State Park

NTS, Yesterday, I revisited this park, hiking the gorge trails on both sides of Enfield Glen. The weather was mild and beautifully clear, and the park was well-attended, in spite some of the rules implemented in response to COVID (one-way traffic on some narrow sections of trail, blocked-off parking...

Re: Rucker Comparisons

Brian, Again, very impressive; I know this represents a lot of work: Thank you. As for individual states, NY is pretty easy; I keep a spreadsheet that's up to date (as far as I know). I'll also see what I can do for VA. NY RHI 5 = 160.22 RHI 10 = 152.06 RHI 15 = 146.92 RHI 20 = 143.25 1. Eastern Whi...

Re: Cherry Patch Pond, Lake Placid, NY

NTS, Last Sunday, 6/7, I returned to Cherry Patch Pond to check on the big Balsam Fir. I located it, and it’s doing very well; current dimensions are Height: 108.7’ CBH: 5.69’ Average Crown Spread (5 spokes): 17’ The biggest Red Spruce mentioned above has fallen, unfortunately. A rough count yielded...

Cole’s Woods, Warren County

NTS, This spring I surveyed this delightful tract of forest on the north side of the city of Glens Falls, NY. From what I’ve gathered on the internet, Cole’s Woods is primarily a cross country skiing spot, complete with lighted and groomed trails. When the snow is gone, the trails are opened to peop...

Re: Schroon River, North Hudson, NY

NTS, This weekend I returned to the Schroon River in North Hudson to check on the Balsam Fir mentioned above. This tree, which was the state champion, I found to be recently blown over, along with several other very nice firs. I plan to nominate a tree that Rob Leverett and I found a few years ago i...

Re: Eastern White Pine (Pinus strobus) 12x150 Club

Bob, I doubt the Grandmother Pine will ever get much bigger than it is now, given its advanced age. You’ve mentioned the DEC’s height figure before; the top of the tree is offset quite a bit from the bottom (I haven’t measured the distance), and my guess is that is the main source of their error. I’...

Re: Eastern White Pine (Pinus strobus) 12x150 Club

NTS, I was able to remeasure the Grandmother Pine at Pack Forest in Warrensburg since my initial post, and am glad to report that it has grown back to just over 150', and can be included in this listing. The old White Pine is now 150.2'; the circumference (169") hasn't been updated since 2017, but l...
