Re: Tree Identification Based on Form Quiz

Since no one else has responded, I will go ahead and put up the identifications for the trees in the first post, ignoring the second for now. 1 - Pignut hickory (Carya glabra) 2 - Tuliptree (Liriodendron tulipifera) 3 - Northern red oak (Quercus rubra) 4 - Bitternut hickory (Carya cordiformis) 5 - S...

Re: Oh Deer

Chan, Unfortunately, fencing works against everything I am trying to accomplish here, which is essentially maintain a healthy forest, fencing would fragment it further, interrupt wildlife (there are many black bears, coyotes, etc.) here that would be severely impacted by fencing, it also adds the ri...

Re: Another opportunity to participate in carbon

Bob, Great news! I've been considering modeling more mature sugar maples and red oaks on Perry Hill and comparing them to small trees, say around 40-50 years old, similar to what you did with Saheda, but my main focus would be to see how much of a correlation there is between hardwood crown volumes ...

Re: Tree Identification Based on Form Quiz

Good guesses so far, I won't list their identifications yet in case anyone else joins in. I suppose I now need to visit one of the trees in my first post, as I'm not even sure of its identification! Here are a few more, if anyone else has photos of tree form or branch structure, I encourage you to p...

Re: Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Home

Elijah, I certainly wouldn't be disappointed at a 146' tuliptree, considering that they seem to top off below 140 in the eastern part of Dutchess County and stands with any tuliptree presence are far and few between. From your description, it sounds like the stand is relatively young? If that is the...

Re: Beware: Nature

Ed, This is hilarious. I'm surprised no one has responded to this yet, considering that it was posted over eight years ago. I wish I had a few of these signs, so that way I could sneak around to some of the people in town who do nothing but whine and complain about having to mow their perfect chemic...

Re: Tree Identification Based on Form Quiz

Erik, Yes, #1 is a Carya. But I do see how it resembles Fraxinus pennsylvanica, I honestly don't see much green ash in my area, though it is around. The form you described can be seen here but not frequently, the majority of the F. pennsylvanica I see in the area actually resembles F. Americana almo...

Tree Identification Based on Form Quiz

ENTS, Lately I've found myself straying further and further from conventional methods of tree identification, essentially bark, leaves, buds, etc. It has become clear to me that so many people must look at fine details of a tree to identify it, but they don't see the big picture, that is the whole t...

Re: Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller NHP and Billings Park

Lucas, The Raggedy Old Pine, Stout Pine and Forked Pine may well be remeasurements, Bob would hopefully be able to say whether they are any that he measured previously. The only intentional remeasurement was the former state height champion, which I measured last summer. The American chestnut is a w...
