Re: Rucker Comparisons

Brian,

Here is the RHI-10 for Northampton, MA. There are bound to be taller cottonwoods and white ashes. But this is a start.Expect the number to go up, but likely not over 125.

Re: Rucker Comparisons

Brian,

Continued great job! I'll get you a couple of towns in Massachusetts. Maybe Jared can add another or two. Boston, Mass's large set city is tall tree poor, I'd say.

The America Forests Carbon Message

Ents, One of the byproducts of measuring trees accurately is the capacity to calculate the carbon stored in the woody and bark parts of a tree. While there is no shortage of models that predict carbon, finding two of them that agree can be a challenge. However, the FIA-COLE model that I've adopted c...

Lee Frelich Pine

On Sunday, Monica and I went to MTSF in the 90+ degree heat. But despite the discomfort, I was singularly focused on re-measuring the Lee Frelich Pine the Algonquin Grove. It turned out to be the same as last year: 169.2 feet tall and 9.2 feet in girth. Needle drop fungus may have been the main culp...

Re: Cathedral Pines, Cornwall

Jared, We are indebted to you and Ray for bringing the Cathedral Pines back up on our tall tree radar. This once New England flagship stand was a favorite haunt of mine and of my son Rob. JACK SOBON measured a pine there in the 1980s to 172 feet using his transit. There were a number over 160 accord...

Re: Rucker Comparisons

Brian, The epicenter of black birch development is presumably a strip going across southern New England and NY and PA. Ohio has its share also. When white pine and oak are cut up here, black birch springs up in profusion. Some years ago, I started a black birch database as you'll likely recall. In t...

Re: Rucker Comparisons

Brian, The birch at Smith College is a black birch. In terms of its white cousins, John Eichholz broke 100 feet on a white birch in Mohawk Trail State Forest years ago. I can ask him what his numbers are. Interestingly, of yellow, black, and white. black is the clear height winner in New England, an...
