Valhalla

I ended up accidentally finally checking out the Valhalla VT Eastern Hemlock Glen. It is described in "Old Growth in the East" as a 30 acre never cut Eastern Hemlock ravine with some oaks. My quick peak of the ravine general area suggests or found: 1. Every single Eastern Hemlock of any size at all ...

Re: Historial photo by Albert Roth of American chestnut.

There's also this tree, which I've pointed to before... http://books.google.com/books?id=mpBOAQAAIAAJ&pg=PA412&img=1&zoom=3&hl=en&sig=ACfU3U26BCE1B-_oNigEARIWezIir6sYfQ&ci=117%2C92%2C816%2C1357&edge=0 Gosh, that's impressive. It seems like a Redwood! Many western specimens would be jealous of that ...

Re: Birch Mania

The Adirondacks seems to be king for Yellow Birch. It seems to be perhaps the most common of the large deciduous old-growth trees there. They might not be the tallest trees around there, but man so many fat ones! Lots of the old-growth forest there seems to be dominated by ancient Yellow Birch.

Re: An exceptional unexceptional black birch

Ents, I would not attempt to draw conclusions at this early stage. But I have long suspected that this rather small tree escapes the notice of the many except as a wispy form with smooth gray-black bark, i.e. its young form. People relate to it because of the wintergreen flavor of its twigs, and ma...

Re: Chalk Maple in NJ??

Is the forest on a limestone substrate? How did you arrive at chalk maple as an ID? You will need to get some really good photos and samples as this is very interesting! Will I'll get some photos (and hope I didn't do something dumb like mistake a slightly unusual Red Maple for a Chalk Maple hah yi...

Re: giant forest grown trees logged by neighbor

For what it's worth, greenent22, I am horrified as well, and understand your post completely. I would feel exactly as you do if I were there. I'm sure I would type up a similar post to this forum about it. Wow. I just don't believe it. Thanks it's like a nightmare that I keep feeling like we'll wak...

Re: giant forest grown trees logged by neighbor

Green, Thanks for responding. I respect that you value this patch of forest you've adopted as your own, but the reality is that the land didn't belong to you, and the new owner had different priorities for it than you wanted. Seeing the land cleared is surely a sad thing for you and your friends an...

Chalk Maple in NJ??

Looking at tree range maps I see that the Chalk Maple supposedly doesn't grow farther north than the Southern Apps or so and it is described as being rare across it's entire range, but I see to have found one in NJ. The forest is pretty old (oldest tree so far ring counted to 180+) and somewhat mixe...
