Re: Superior Municiple Forest

Larry--Bob is right that you would need tribal permission to wander through most of the forest, but you can certain experience it to some degree by driving through it--there are a number of state highways and public roads that cross the reservation; you could also take one of the float tours of the ...

Re: My Rangefinders TruPulse200X, Leica and Nikon

Karl--Thanks for the great report! I'd like to adapt this for the next Bulletin of the Eastern Native Tree Society, if possible--or if you'd like to update this original report with more information and field testing, that would be great, too...Please email me directly on this (DonCBragg@netscape.ne...

Re: Delta National Forest Part I Sweetgum Natural Research A

Joe--sorry for not replying sooner...been real busy last couple of weeks... The truth is that in a lot of places rutting is considered part of the business, even in the uplands. Many of the areas that will be planted to pine (mostly the uplands) will be ripped & bedded, so some rutting will be addre...

Re: Delta National Forest Part I Sweetgum Natural Research A

According to my fellow foresters who work in the bottomland hardwoods of this area, the Delta National Forest RNAs used to be a lot more impressive 20 years ago...wind and ice storms have taken their toll in recent years. Good to see a few big ones left--when I last visited this stand several years ...

I'd be willing to help...My first task, though, will be looking for a new national champion shortleaf pine!!

Re: Fallen national champion shortleaf pine

Bob--I am well...the new gig with the Journal of Forestry eats up a lot of my free time, but has been interesting, to say the least. Still plugging away with old-growth-related work, and still occasionally get my laser out to measure some tree heights...

Fallen national champion shortleaf pine

It is with some sadness that I must report the national champion shortleaf pine from Ashley County, Arkansas, has been broken off in a recent windstorm at about 40 feet in a recent windstorm. It has one very small live branch remaining green, but I do not expect this tree to survive long in this con...

Re: Enormous Red Pine?

I have been in this area before (Breakfast Lake) doing some of my MS work at Michigan Tech. Do not recall any large red pine in the area...certainly were some large white pines (other than those at Estivant). This tree must have been a cull--besides the rotten base, there is a cut stump right near w...

Re: Cathedral Pines Wisconsin

Ed & Susan-- Thanks for digging into this...Will was correct to doubt that these were eastern white pines! I wasn't able to find this picture on the Marathon County Historical Society's website, so maybe they've also found out that it wasn't from Wisconsin. Disappointing, but that is how it goes som...
