Re: Howland's Island

NTS, As I've probably reached the end of the season for tree surveying on Howland's Island, I thought I'd share some of the more interesting finds I've made recently. Also included are a handful of re-measurements. Here they are: Silver Maple Acer saccharinum 86.2' x 12.80' (CBH taken at 7'; most ea...

Re: Big Basin - Allegany State Park

Erik,

Wow, those are beautiful trees. That Blackgum has a look similar to the ones Tom Howard and I found at Verona Beach State Park a couple of years ago, though yours is much larger. The treasures you're finding in Allegany seem to have no end. Keep up the good work.

Re: New World Record For White Fir

Michael, Duncan, Congratulations on a new record. Those are both incredible trees. As far as Western North American fir heights are concerned, A. procera is still #1, but the group behind it seems to have bunched up quite a bit. A. concolor, A. magnifica, A. grandis , and A. amabilis all have been m...

Galen WMA

NTS, Last month, while on a weekend drive through Wayne County, NY, I stumbled across a lovely piece of State land. On my OnX App, the ownership is listed as the NYS Thruway Authority (which controls the nearby Erie Canal), but the PDF map on the NY DEC's website shows the whole area as the Galen Wi...

Adirondack Life Article on Erik

NTS,

Here’s the Adirondack Life article about Erik Danielsen’s recent remeasure of the Ampersand White Pine:

A few details are a little bit off, but it’s overall a good piece. Congratulations, Erik.

Re: Introducing - Redonkulous

Michael, Duncan,

Great find. I’m glad to see you guys out there in the thick of it, still coming up with undiscovered giants. Hopefully I’ll make it out there soon.

Congrats,

Re: Lake Quinault Loop

Turner, You’re very welcome. Thank you for sharing what you’ve found in the West, as well. If I had an extra day or two, I would have gone to southern Idaho to check out what you reported on in 2015 & 2018. I also originally planned to visit Seeley Lake in Montana, but decided not to because of the ...

Lake Quinault Loop

NTS, I walked just a few yards of this trail through the magnificent old growth south of Lake Quinault in 2018, and vowed to return later. Last week I was able to do just that. What an amazing display of Pacific Northwest rain forest! I certainly haven't seen all of the old growth Coast Douglas-fir ...

Pleasant Valley Campground, Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest

NTS, While in Washington last week, I made a special east-west drive through the Cascades, starting near Yakima, WA on WA-410, and effectively ending at the edge of Mt. Rainier National Park near the Ohanapecosh River. The scenery, even with a smokey haze, was outstanding. My purpose for taking this...

Re: Hoh Rainforest

Erik,

The Olympics don't feel as northerly as they are, I guess because of the rainforest ecosystem at low elevation. The GPS coordinates of the Cottonwood are: 47 51.550, -123 56.130.
