The Two Tallest Trees In Iceland

Apparently the two tallest trees in Iceland are both Sitka spruce ( Picea sitchensis ), and located near a small village called Kirkjubæjarklaustur in south central Iceland.

Re: West Point Foundry Preserve

I worked on the non-native invasive plant control program in Rock Creek National Park during one summer a while back. I believe we considered Norway maple one of our invasives that we were treating for. I believe it was outcompleting native maple species in the area. Even in forest interior areas. N...

Civil War Witness Trees

For three days in July, 1863, two great armies collided on the fields of Gettysburg. It remains the bloodiest battle in U.S. history. And, improbably, 155 years later, there are still living witnesses to that moment in time: The trees. Across 6,000 acres of Gettysburg National Military Park, ranger...
