Re: Very Large White-Cedar (Thuja occidentalis) at cliffLAND

Thanks for posting that link, Lucas. Have seen similar, including one out of Michigan that still stands out in my memory for its gloomy outlook! Authors of that one were basically saying forget it! Yet there sits the conundrum of my land, in deer-thick NE Wisconsin-where the cedar thrives like it al...

Re: Very Large White-Cedar (Thuja occidentalis) at cliffLAND

Larry, if ever in the NE section of the state (Wisconsin), I can offer you some general pointers about good areas to search in.

Re: Very Large White-Cedar (Thuja occidentalis) at cliffLAND

Heh, some sources say this tree doesn't get as big as other tree types. I say it does, but it just takes a long time for it to get there! Awesome.

Re: Looking for a term

Thanks Lucas but no, that's not it. It was an unfamiliar word for me until I'd seen it a few times, and polysyllabic. Hmmm....probably first saw the word somewhere on this board!

Looking for a term

Hey fellows and fellettes: There is a term used to capture all tree types having very pronounced buttressing. I used to know it but have managed to forget.......and would thank any one of you able to refresh my memory, which while good, is quite short! Or......since this is all about me forgetting s...

Re: Kapok Tree Key West

I would agree-the SW portion of Florida has much to offer the nature lover. It is-of course-under extreme development pressure.....it's nothing to see perhaps a couple hundred acres of forest cleared and piled up to burn or chip into vans (semi trailers) so more housing subdivisions and Walmarts can...

Re: Thuja occidentalis

Awesome. If you or I tried to get a tree growing on a rock like that, we'd fail every time. That's one of the things I love about white cedar stands-their many old-growth characteristics. Where my land is, in Oconto County, WI in the "near north", numerous very large white cedar somehow had a paper ...

Re: Thuja occidentalis

Heh......a little shall we say "moist" in NW Wisconsin of late! Some place up there received 14 inches of rain in one event recently, with the entire area getting anywhere from 5 to 11 inches from that storm event. Right where the dear governor and his campaign contributors wanted to site this plane...

Re: Banyan Tree Islamorada Florida

Heh Larry....if it seems like I'm following you around the forum this morning....! In any case, once again, check out the Edison grounds in Fort Myers for a much, much larger Banyan. But again, this one is cool too.
