Old-growth - avon Boardwalk :(

There will be 1000 year old trees to be seen in Avon, NJ soon.... as planking for their new U.S. taxpayer funded boardwalk. :(

Re: Bull's Island OG to be cut down?!!!!!!!?

And combine this with how NJ found out about an old cedar swamp in the Pine Barrens and wanted to immediately move in and log it before the "over-ripe" trees all died so as to "save" the forest and some wonder why I am so against the proposed bill to open up NJ state wildelife and park preserves to ...

Re: Bulls Island OG to be cut down?!?

Apparently as of late last fall it still hadn't been cut down yet. They said that they were in the process of examing the plan still. So far a petition against the cut has 21,000 signatures (as of sometime last year). The DEP still thinks it makes sense to log the dangerous and deadly old-growth for...

Dunnfield Creek DWNP

I need to visit it again, but from memory I recall some pretty decent sized trees there. Unless I'm mistaken, I'd bet there are some decent acreages of forest in that ravine creek that are 180-225 years old or so.

15' CBH x 100+' sugar maple in DWGNP

I will check this one out. Word of a patch of forest in the Delaware Watergap National Park that has a sugar maple as large as 15' CBH and supposedly forest grown 100+' tall. Hopefully it's some new little old-growth patch. But it could still turn out to be a lone remnant or a wolf-tree type thing. ...

older cedar forest in southern NJ

http://teegate.njpinebarrens.com/12052009/3.jpg Don't know anything else about other than what that article states. (and both the article author and NJ forestry people display some rather unfortunate attitudes, all the old garbage about how trees are a crop that dies shortly after becoming mature so...

apparently some 100+ old cedar in barrens

http://njhiking.ning.com/profiles/blogs ... bing-range

Not particularly sure it is old-growth at all, but at least it might be 100 years or a bit older, which I guess isn't bad for what it left of the barrens.

Re: Came across a new potential tract (or2trees)far sourther

if you want company exploring it, me and my equipment would be glad to come along. Do you have the photo? The only thing I have is: http://www.panoramio.com/photo/35330052 I'm not quite sure how much trust to put into it. It might just be one or two old trees that were left standing for whatever re...
