Re: Tree Maximums - Genus of the Week: Abies (fir)

Bob, There are about 18 persons in our Monumental Tree-group I am aware of measuring with laser and Sine method. Probably all of them measure with the Nikon Forestry 550 or nearly identical instruments. Some of these 18 are not aware of the differences between tangent and sine based measurements. Al...

Re: Tree Maximums - Genus of the Week: Abies (fir)

Bob, I missed your reply till now. Indeed a very big Abies alba! It is the second tall of this species our group laser measured till now. Tallest 3 we found till now are very close to each other: 1. Bosnia Hercegovina, Perucica Forest, Sutjeska National Park: 54.0 m (177.17 ft); CBH 4.0 m (13.12 ft)...

Re: Tree Maximums - Genus of the Week: Abies (fir)

Recently the largest European Silver Fir (Abies alba) in the Bavarian Forest, Germany, was measured by Rainer Lippert. He is an active measurer from Germany and for over a year is a member of Monumental Trees. Kouta and Karlheinz have met him in July and together measured a lot of tall trees. He mea...

Re: European crab apple

Kouta, You and Karlheinz are finding nice new records, in part because there are so few reliable heightmeasurers in Europe, except for the Netherlands, where Leo Goudzwaard, Nardo Kaandorp and I searched a lot since 2009 and wich is small, with less good conditions for trees to grow tall compared to...

Re: 50 Meter Club

Thanks Bob, for honouring us European ENTS by proposing a 50 m+ list. Indeed for us it is strange that the Americans keep to the old system, even more than the in many ways very traditional English people. In many European countries the metric system was already introduced by Napoleon two centuries ...

Re: Copper Beech Forms

Bob, These copper beeches are very nice but not abnormal: in Europe it was very normal use to plant several young beeches and other treespecies together in one hole. Some park- and garden designers of the English lanscape style in the early 19th century did this very often by purpose to get big, imp...

Re: New height record for European native broadleaf trees

This beech in the end proves the species is able to reach 49 m or 160 feet! Several years ago I wrote Bob and Will that there had been measured a 49 m beech by climbing in Germany. Alas the man who had climbed it a few years before he told me had not good information about the location and no furthe...

Re: Tall European trees

In post 10 of this topic I included an update of the list of tallest trees of the Netherlands. It is only a selection of some species. I have copied it here also. I updated the list for the Netherlands in April 2013. There are few substantial changes found in the three years since I posted this list...

Re: Wikipedia Artilces

Hi Ed, This is really superb work! You have spent a lot of time in this! I don't know if you did it all on your own. Perhaps some of the experienced ENTS and people like Steve Sillett and Bob van Pelt have some comments, but this is probably the standard text now on this subject! I hope many tree me...

Re: Live Oaks in Vacherie Louisiana Part 2 Oak Alley

Larry, I agree that colder climate is responcible for the smaller size of Live Oak in more northern states. But looking to the other oaks species in the eastern USA (like White Oak, Northern Red Oak, Cherry Bark Oak, Bur Oak, etc.) most of them in the natural situation before European settlers came ...
