Re: castle sequoia fire

Also I have a few trees for you in Mountain Home that should easily make your lists, most below 30K but mid 20 to high 20's. Also a couple in giant forest I wanted to ask you about as well as one in Mariposa.

Re: Oregons largest tree?

cggordon, Here is an old photo I have of the DNT. If you look closely you can see the branches on the trees to the left match up and some features of the tree as well to your photo. I would guess it is just an honest mistake on their part. Maybe they were given bad info or no info and assumed the tr...

Re: castle sequoia fire

I don’t have a high-resolution copy on my phone but this is the map that I’ve been looking at. Or a version of the map anyway. Three finger Jack looks to be in the green. Euclid may be in trouble although the lace meadow and BP areas seem to fall mostly in the green.

Re: castle sequoia fire

I've also been worried about Summit Rd Tree for that very reason. It kind of grew into that log lying on the ground. From looking at the fire intensity map I have from Save the Redwoods it looks like Three Fingered Jack might be ok and just about everything in Balch Park hopefully will be fine. Old ...

Re: Oregons largest tree?

cggordon,

This looks a lot like the "Del Norte Titan" in California to me. I've been back to it a couple times. Maybe one of the other redwoods guys (Zane, Mario, John, Michael, Max Ect) can confirm.

Re: castle sequoia fire

The above tree I mentioned I call "Califlour". I had actually measured in late June and posted it in "measuring the Worlds Largest Trees". It looks like you had measured it in July as "Balch Park Ridgetop". Our measurements are sooo incredibly close which is nice to see. I may have included the larg...

Re: castle sequoia fire

R ide, The site is beautiful and I sent a message over to you tonight. I have a 31K sequoia for you to check out when you get the chance. Either way the field report on the site for the above stated grove is heartbreaking.

Re: castle sequoia fire

60% for all trees or for the giant sequoias? I saw photos of Balch Park and it looked good but from the heat maps some of the other areas looked awful. I spent about 2 weeks up these this summer.

Is this the world's longest branch?

So I remember reading a post from 2008 where I believe Dr Bob Van Pelt had a black walnut branch at 94' and several other species with limbs in the 70-80' range. Well anyhow my friend Max (he noticed it first) and I have been eyeing up this redwood branch for a while now and the other day as we walk...

Re: castle sequoia fire

Thanks for sharing, just awful. I'm worried about many of my favorite trees in Mountain Home. Although it seems almost all the trees in the Balch Park area have survived, the fire burnt really hot in the Dog Meadow and eastern portion of Summit Rd. Trees like the Great Bonsai, Summit Rd Tree, Mounta...
