Re: Palmer Woods, Cayuga Heights, NY

NTS, In January 2021 I revisited Palmer Woods with the aim of updating the measurements Tom Howard and I made in 2015. I also found a bunch of new trees, some of which helped to boost the site’s Rucker Height Index. Here’s what I measured: Red Maple Acer rubrum 110.2’ x 6.47’ Black Birch Betula lent...

Re: Daily digests

Kouta, Shorea, NTS,

I stopped getting Daily Digests last month (January 2021), so you can add me to the list. I didn't change any of the settings in my account profile. I have no idea what the problem is, but for now I'll keep an eye out and see if the emails resume at some point.

Re: Ragged Mountain Natural Area, Charlottesville, VA

Brian, Bob, Bee, Ragged Mountain has two 170’+ Tulips for sure, and probably two or three more. James Madison’s Montpelier probably has two or three, but the tallest there was 172’ when I measured it in late 2019. As far as I know, the 175’ tree is the tallest known in the state. I still think talle...

Re: Ragged Mountain Natural Area, Charlottesville, VA

Brian, Thank you for your help. Some of the nearby Ashes probably are still alive, so I should be able to get a good look at the leaves in the future. This tree looks like a variety of White Ash, and I understand why some people consider it to be just that. The Red Oak was a pain to measure this tim...

Re: Ragged Mountain Natural Area, Charlottesville, VA

NTS, This past week I was able to return to Ragged Mountain and check on some of the trees I had found and measured in December 2019. Before sharing the stats, I have a couple of photos of a dead Ash I ran across. I think it might be a Biltmore Ash, and I’d like a second opinion. IMG_0648.jpg IMG_06...

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

NTS, I double-checked the height of the two tallest White Pines on January 24, 2021. Here are their respective heights: Pine 1 158.3’ Pine 2 154.7’ These stats are nearly identical (within the margin of error) to those gathered at the end of the 2019 growing season. I think Erik’s weather-related ex...

Re: Undiscovered Old-Growth near Woodward PA??

Bee, Bob, Erik, Pondering the historical size potential of Eastern White Pine is lots of fun, and something I’m guilty of from time to time. I generally discount height figures obtained from standing trees, though some probably are in the ballpark. Diameter or circumference figures are probably more...
