Re: Kapok Tree Key West

Nice tree! You really need to view the much larger one at Edison grounds in Fort Myers. But this is cool.

Re: Thuja occidentalis

Hi miwinski. Not sure if you're aware or not-no intent to insult your intelligence-nor do I necessarily know what all I've revealed in other threads related to this one....but Door County is a part of the Niagara Escarpment. Yes, a part of the very same chunk of limestone over which the famous falls...

Re: Thuja occidentalis

You bet, Matt. Interesting sidenote: The basic forest type, composed of more northerly-occurring species,extends along Lake Michigan almost as far south as Milwaukee. Door Cty. is the best place to see the best stands, I think, but that type extends quite far south. Cetainly, Sheboygan would have on...

Thuja occidentalis

Hey ENTS: So, spent the weekend in beautiful Door County, Wisconsin. Been up there many a time, yet this trip surprised me in a number of ways. First, although the entirety of Door Cty.is T. occidentalis central, what with it's Niagara Escarpment limestone bedrock (The species is a strong calciphile...

So, evidently, hemlock woolly adelgid not present in that part of NY? If so, glad to hear it!

Re: Two Lakes Oak-Pine Forest State Natural Area

Thanks again, Don. Got to love those big red pines. Nothing quite like those gleaming pink/purple trunks.

Re: Tomahawk Lake Hemlocks State Natural Area

Wish I could disagree about future adelgid impacts, but I can't. True, winters in N. Wisconsin feature some of the coldest air outbreaks to be found anywhere in the US, but with today's anomalous weather patterns, who knows how long we've got that to count on. As it stands, I am quite sure that sect...

Re: Possible unauthorized bur oak limb cuts

Exactly right. Me...I've pruned right around 26,382 trees to date. And it is indeed the branch collar/branch bark ridge which together make up the target for proper placement of cut. It's easy once you get used to it. Like was already said-I've too seen worse, but this is far from good.

Re: Forest trees trade large quantities of carbon via fungi

At the risk of bending this thread slightly off-topic, I believe this president will be regarded much better by history than present-day noise would suggest. And I say that as one who has not always been in complete agreement with the man. TPP for instance is yet another giveaway to giant, multi-nat...

Re: Forest trees trade large quantities of carbon via fungi

There he goes, listening to scientists again....Hasn't the guy got it yet-we gave up on that science stuff a while ago-right about when this current congress got elected!
