Re: Big Creek/Mouse Creek and vicinity *NEW RECORDS*

Will, Nice measurements. I did not now Halesia grows to such heights. The few planted here as ornamentals are very small trees a few meters tall; the record in the UK seems to be 16 m (52 ft). About European oaks: we have lasermeasured only few oaks in Europe, except hundreds of Quercus robur in the...

Re: Invasion of the exotic earthworms!

Ed, Kouta, James, It is often the same with introduced exotic species: they are a plague in the new environment. I see the mentioned earth worms are of Asiatic origin. In Europe I have never heard of the same problem with exotic earth worms. The native earth worms are no plague, they are thought of ...

Re: Bialowieza Forest, Poland

James, Thanks! I'll ask Tomasz if he will look at the BBS and joining ENTS. The English is perhaps a bit of a problem. He has a large website about big trees in Bialowieza; a part is in English: http://www.drzewa.puszcza-bialowieska.eu/ang/ See beautiful new photos he took this year at: http://www.d...

Re: Bialowieza Forest, Poland

ENTS, Yesterday I got some new measurements with Nikon Forestry 550 laser ranger from Tomasz Niechoda, who has visited Bialowieza again in August. For European ash, Scots pine, Small-leaved lime and Wych elm there are some new lasermeasured height records for the forest. Here is a new list, combinin...

Re: Norway Spruces Behaving Strangely

Bob, Your Norways spruces indeed are fantastic! Even in their native Europe there are probably few places with so many strange monsters among them. I've seen some in Switzerland. It must be something with the climate and soil but also with the type of planting as ornamentals, what is not done very o...

Re: Tall trees in Sächsische Schweiz National Park, Germany

Kouta, A very nice report with beautiful photos! At May 10th of 2007 I was within a few miles from that place but at that moment did not realise one of the tallest Norway spruces of Germany was there. I had a Suunto clinometer at that moment with me but not yet the Nikon laser... Perhaps you could g...

Re: Bialowieza Forest, Poland

Ed, ENTS, Indeed it is good to give attention to this protest. The information given on the site is not totally correct. Of the 58.000 hectares (one hectare is 2,5 acre) of the Bialowieza forest in Poland 4700 hectare was a National Park since the 1920-ees. This was a very strict reserve since then ...

Re: Hainich National Park, Germany

Doug, Bob, Kouta, ENTS: Indeed it should be very nice to have an ENTS meeting in Germany and the Czech Republic! The Hainich National Park is beautiful, I visited it twice in 2003 and 2005. It is not the largest forest of Germany, but the largest natural broadleaf forest area of Germany. Some other ...
