Re: Daniel Boone NF, McCreary County, KY

Very nice photos, and thanks you for letting us know the location. I'd like to have a look at this area myself...it looks beautiful. Tell us about the stand where the 300-year-old pine is. I spent some time helping stop the Forest Service from logging old growth myself, here in Virginia. Have any sh...

Re: Champion trees of Britain and Ireland

Seems to me I read about that tree several years ago, that duff from the hollow interior had been carbon dated to that age...but I haven't heard of that being done to any other tree. I question how accurate that could be, considering all the carbon being brought into the interior hollows of trees by...

Re: Saying Goodbye to the Parkway

Robert- Crabtree Falls (the one in Virginia, not NC, that is) was one of the first places I went exploring back in the 70's. There used to be one huge tuliptree by the trail. Is it still there? There were magnificent hemlocks along the creek then, including one of the largest around. This was one of...

Re: Changing forest--Porcupine Mountains

Love this trip report, Lee. Can you recommend a "must see" trail or specific area to visit for first-timers?

old growth tuliptree

I happened on a photo of a giant tuliptree, apparently part of a stand of old growth that has been preserved as a part of a private conservation easement in Franklin County, VA. Here is the link to the photo and article by the Western Virginia Land Trust:

Re: Rich Hole Wilderness

From the trailhead it's only about a mile to first large trees (before the ones described), just across the cove that the trail climbs up. It's only a few hundred yards farther to the extensive old growth just beyond the gap as described. There are some steep stretches. Be sure you go to trailhead a...

There are more individuals of this species at roughly four feet DBH than I've seen in any comparable acreage, even in the S...

Re: Bulloch Hall, Roswell, GA

That would be great, Eli. I thought the Atlanta area was beautiful when I saw it. Fernbank...is that the name of a preserve there with old growth?
