I finally had the chance to visit the forest grove at Kirkjubæjarklaustur to see some of the tallest trees in Iceland, including the one that is purported to be the tallest tree in the country. All of the tallest ones here are Sitka spruce (Picea sitchensis), planted at his location during the 1940s...

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...
