Re: Largest elm in NY

I drove by the elm yesterday to see how it was doing, as I do about once a year, and was horrified to see nothing but a stump. WTF?

Re: Blue Gum Superlatives, invasive yet impressive

Nice that you measured my Lions Wayside tree in Pleasanton and got the same results I did in April 2014.

Re: Fork Ridge Tuliptree- new eastern height record!!!

Yes Bob, I know of many tuliptrees north of Kingston in Eastern NY, that were planted and are not endemic, and are not propagating. There is a 100 year old tuliptree at Yaddo in Saratoga Springs, which is around 300 feet elevation. It's around 90 feet tall and 12 inches in diameter. It was planted w...

Re: Fork Ridge Tuliptree- new eastern height record!!!

I said there are no tuliptrees in the Adirondacks, because it's too far north. This is a true statement. I also said the farthest north tuliptrees get (in the direction of the Adirondacks) is Kingston. This is another true statement.

Re: Fork Ridge Tuliptree- new eastern height record!!!

Syracuse is far west of Kingston, in the Great Lakes region, where the climate is heavily modified by the lakes. Kingston is not. The argument is without merit.

Outer Mongonia is farther north than Kingston also.

Re: Fork Ridge Tuliptree- new eastern height record!!!

Why do people love to argue so much? Go check out any range map for tuliptree and you will see they are not endemic in eastern NY north of Kingston. Not talking about western NY or central NY.

Syracuse is MUCH warmer than the Adirondacks. We get -30 and -40 here all the time.

Re: Fork Ridge Tuliptree- new eastern height record!!!

Thanks. I've always been a big fan of tuliptrees but they are not endemic this far north (Adirondacks of NY). About the farthest north you see them is Kingston NY or Poughkeepsie, and the ones planted up here don't thrive because they bloom in late May and don't get very big. Down in New York City t...

Re: Fork Ridge Tuliptree- new eastern height record!!!

This was an awesome read. I just stuck a pic I took yesterday of a 130 footer on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liriodendron which is the wikipedia article on tuliptrees, and found your article here had been referenced regarding a record 191.9 foot tree. Not sure I'd be comfortable climbing near the ...

Re: Tallest Northern California Eucalyptus

OK I did a quick google search and found a 75 meter eucalypt in Portugal

http://www.git-forestry.com/KarriKnight ... icolor.htm

That's around 245 feet.

Supposedly the tallest tree in Europe.

Re: Tallest Northern California Eucalyptus

I don't know about northern hemisphere, better check some of the Eucalyptus trees that have been growing for centuries in Spain and other European countries with a Mediterranean climate. I read about them but have forgotten the information. Last I heard, there were some extremely big Eucalyptus tree...
