Boot Lake SNA

Boot lake Scientific and Natural Area is located in Anoka County MN. I discovered this SNA through research on the MNDNR SNA program. Following this trip to Boot Lake I talked with Lee Frelich at the U of MN and he had noted that his team had measured this area also. The date of our trip was 3/8/14 ...

Re: Managing Elm trees

I would suggest contacting the city forestry or parks dept. Most cities in MN have an ordinance for DED. If you report the trees the city can condemn them if needed. Sanitation has been a useful tool for cities in the upper midwest for DED. But keeping up with the disease can be hard. I know for mos...

Re: Tree Maximums - Tree of the Week: Populus deltoides

Bob, That sounds cool. I have some older lists and MNDNR articles that could help fill some space in your article. Hopefully I can get out again this next weekend to gather some photos and a few measurements. I am big fan of cottonwoods. I look forward to helping with some projects or whatever is ne...

Re: White oak, Vermilion Ohio

Steve,

Great tree. I noticed a hollow by your feet in the picture. Is the whole trunk hollow?

Re: Black Creek Wilderness Trail

Larry,

Nice finds. Seems you are going were you need to go lately.

I am always fascinated by adaptive growth in trees. That white oak is neat.

Re: Tree Maximums - Tree of the Week: Populus deltoides

Matt, Bob, Thanks, the tree is a nice one. It was actually the first time I have measured that particular tree. I also measured a cottonwood with similar numbers on that day a remeasure to be more accurate. Unfortunately my cameras battery went dead. I will post the results from that tree when I get...

Re: Tree Maximums - Genus of the Week: Juglans (Walnut)

Matt, I would think that the height is good. I climbed that tree in 2009 with some friends. Dropped a tape for 77'. Also, and I am not a great dendrologist, I think this Butternut may be a cross breed. There is a lot of canker in that park and some trees within 100yds of the big tree that are riddle...

Falls creek Scientific and Natural Area

ENTS, Visited a nice site along the St Croix River a little over a year ago. I did some solo measuring in Falls Creek SNA on Nov. 2, 2013. I first visited falls creek in 2001, as a recreational tree climber trying to find a spot hang out. I noticed the small parking lot off the highway and the tall ...

Tamarack

Ents, Had an opportunity to remeasure the national champion Tamarack Larix laricina . I first visited this tree in 2011. Some colleagues and myself were teaching a tree climbing class at the community college in Brainerd. Did some digging, fond some contact info, and we got permission to see the tre...
