Re: The Perućica Forest reserve in Bosnia Herzegovina

Bob, Thanks for this compliments, but you and your fellow ents (together with the Western treemeasurers) were the most important inspiration for us to start heightmeasuring with laser and the Sine method as well as by climbing. Till now we did not plan new trips. Beside again visiting some of the fo...

Re: Travelogue Part 6: the Perućica Forest Reserve

Chris, Indeed there has been done scientific research in these forests, but part of them has been published in Serbian language. At my report of Perućica I added a small list of literature, wich is scientific. Kouta has some reports and books, some reports can be found on internet. Compared to Weste...

Re: Biogradska Gora – two new broadleaf tree height records

Here is an attached list of the height- and girthrecords we found at our visit to Biogradska Gora. Of several species we saw in the reserve (like Salix alba, Alnus incana, Acer platanoïdes and Quercus petraea) we did not make good measurements, so they are not included. Jeroen Biogradska Gora-Tree-l...

The Prašnik Oak Forest in Croatia

Prašnik Oak Forest At June 21 2012 we visited the Prašnik Special Reserve, an oak forest near Stara Gradiška, Croatia. This is a rather small (53.35 hectare) remnant and the only uncut part of the once huge virgin Slavonian oakforests along the Sava and Drava rivers. This then nearly uninhabited are...

Re: Balkans Expedition 2012 Travelogue Part 1

Thanks Bob, for all the compliments. Michael is a good writer indeed, reason we asked him to write the travelogue; Kouta and I will just write the technical reports. While Michael starts the post with mentioning Abies nordmanniana (Nordmann fir or Caucasian fir), perhaps you confused things. The res...

Re: Wiltshire oak tree declared UK's tallest

Larry, I think that in the best locations, sheltered like the Stourhead location, with good soil and watersupply, Q. robur in old growth forests in England could grow to 140 ft and Q. petraea perhaps to 150 ft. The forest with the tallest Q. petraea is in Western France, latitude 47° 48′ 23.19″ N an...

Re: Wiltshire oak tree declared UK's tallest

Hi Larry, This oak seems not to be very tall to you, compared to the up to 160 ft oaks in Congaree, but that is an old growth area much more to the south. The UK has no old growth forests left (the nearest old growth oak forest is the Bialowieza forest in Eastern Poland), and, unlike France and Germ...
