Re: Giants of Monroe State Forest

Andrew, was this photo taken from up in the crown of the Thoreau pine? Quite a perspective. Yes, approximately mid-crown, here's looking over Dunbar Brook running downstream to the right from the same location in the Thoreau Pine. I've had the privilege to do some measuring climbs for the ENTS. htt...

Re: Giants of Monroe State Forest

If you look closely at the high res photo of the Grandfather Pine you can see where the top was most recently broken by weather, the diameter at the uppermost break hints that tree has been taller. Both the Grandfather and the Thoreau tree have reached high enough above everything else, they may hav...

Re: Fastest growing tree on the planet?

In regard to Michael's comment on the flattened out, slower growing crown of the Wallaby Creek tree, I suspect this has more to do with the surrounding average canopy height than the ability of a plus 300' tree to continue fast upward growth. I think this goes for the classic "emergent" species. The...

Re: "The most exciting novel about trees you’ll ever read"

This review of "A Forest Unfolding" does a better job than I can do describing what the musical piece is about: https://www.bostonglobe.com/arts/music/2018/08/01/unusual-collaboration-creates-musical-forest/3p6I7KBlBVD5mOGrX6jR6L/story.html At the reception following the Portland performance there w...

Re: "The most exciting novel about trees you’ll ever read"

Recently read "Overstory", then "The Echo Maker" by Richard Powers. Also had the great pleasure to run into Bob, Monica and Joan Maloof at the premiere of "A Forest Unfolding" (collaborative spoken word, sung, composed, contemporary chamber music piece in part conceived by Richard Powers) in Peterbo...

Re: Bad Storm Yesterday in Northeast

I talked with a guy in Sudbury and he said the trees were down all over the place. Is true it was just snow load and no wind like he said? How much snow was on the trees? We has the same conditions a couple of nights ago much got no wind and no breakage. That is correct, we had a period of wind but...

Re: Bad Storm Yesterday in Northeast

This was an extraordinary weather event, in my area northwest and west of Boston there is extensive tree damage around houses and in the woods. Majority of limb or total failures are trees with existing problems like heart rot, codominant leader structure etc. Conifers are a different story, large h...

Re: LiDAR Coverage for the Eastern USA

I did a mapping of "swifteast3" (contains the 150' range LiDAR hits) to a satellite view that I pieced together. I can make it available to Jared for ground verification. Individual trees in the satellite view can be matched to the LiDAR hits. Jared may be all over this and already measured the tree...
