Re: Borneo: Expedition Big Tree

Ed, Its a bit confusing: is there a new Borneo Expedition or are you just pointing to the old information of 2005 - 2007? Indeed it is a pity Roman Dial did not give new posts since that time. In his posts some years ago he said he could not give all information while National Geographic should not ...

Re: Upcoming Concerts by Monica Jakuc Leverett

Bob and James, Nice to hear your history. Actually my wife Gerdien is a professional classical piano - player and teacher as well and she loves nature as much! We met each other in 1987 because of singing in the same choir and having the same singing teacher. So I'm a lover of classical music as wel...

Tallest trees in Europe may be at risk

ENTS, Last week I got an alarming mail by Michael Spraggon, a British tall tree measurer for the Tree register of the British Isles. This was his mail: Hi Jeroen, I thought you might like to know about something that is happening which has caused me great concern. I am contacting everyone I know who...

Re: some old trees in northern Germany

James, I think its the way around: "Lime" is the old English name for the trees of the Tilia genus, probably from the early Middle ages. In Holland we call them "Linde", just like in Germany. In the Slavian languagues its called "Lipa" and in French "Tilleul" from " Tilia ". I think the name "Basswo...

Re: some old trees in northern Germany

James, Yes, the Knorreiche is perhaps the most picturesque! To say what are the largest and oldest oaks of the world is not sure.Till now the Middleton oak and the Ivenack oak seem to be the largest known of the two species in volume and seem to be about as large. But Mexico has a lot of oak species...

some old trees in northern Germany

Last week together with Remke van Rijswijk I visited the north-eastern part of Germany, most in the Bond-state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. We met Kouta Räsänen in the 'Heilige Hallen' beech forest reserve, were we measured several of the largest and tallest European beeches, to know if the in the lit...

Re: European ENTS in Heilige Hallen

Kouta, Indeed for beetles and fungi Heiligen Hallen will be very rich. On internet in an article: http://www.bund-naturschutz.de/fileadmin/download/wald/Seminar_NR_Referat_Moeller-BUND_BUWA_Ebrach_10-04-2008.pdf the comparable beechforest Fauler Ort in Schorfheide-Chorin, Brandenburg, is compared wi...

Re: European ENTS in Heilige Hallen

Kouta, ENTS, This evening I came back from a week to the north eastern part of Germany, the Bond-state of Mecklenburg Vorpommern. This is one of the least populated parts of Germany with relatively a lot of nature. Many smaller and larger lakes with marsh and moorlands are a good habitat for a lot o...

Re: Tall European trees

Kouta and I have planned to meet each other Sunday 9th of May at the Heiligen Hallen beech forest near Feldberg in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern in eastern Germany. There are more beautiful old beechforests around there, but most of them are on poorer soils than Heiligen Hallen so with less tall trees. Tod...

Re: New disease could wipe out English oak

Ed and Bob, This indeed is horrible news. English oak is easily the most important tree in the UK and the Netherlands and one of the most important trees in landscape and forests in most NW and middle European countrees. In Holland I've seen one oak with comparable bleeding woonds along a street two...
