Re: 338 point willow oak in Efland, NC

Patrick, Wow that is a beautiful Willow Oak. Those are some great photos of the tree. Your daughter looks like she had a great time. Man I want to climb with some of you guys. The next time I meet up with some climbers I'm going up! We measured a couple of big Willow Oaks in Congaree in S.C. back i...

338 point willow oak in Efland, NC

Hi NTSers, I wanted to report on a great willow oak that has quickly become one of my favorite trees. The oak marks the boundary between family-owned farmland on one side and a state highway on the other. It is unusual in that there are no trees around it anywhere near its size and grandeur, which m...

Elijah,

These are beautiful oaks! My wife grew up in Auburn, and she and I lived on Gaylord St for a while after we got married.

Thanks for the post,

Re: Stages of earthworm invasion

I just read up on the impact of invasive earthworms on North American forests. I had no idea that this was a problem. I always thought earthworms were good (and maybe the non-invasive ones still are). If others are interested, I found this article quite informative http://www.sciencenewsforkids.org/...

Tanglewood Park, NC revisited

I found myself in Clemmons, NC earlier this week and remembered that Will had suggested Tanglewood Park as a place of interest for tree lovers. Will was nice enough to point me to an area with tall tulip poplars between the cottages and Mallard Lake (see http://www.forsyth.cc/parks/tanglewood/Docume...

Re: Eno River Tulip Tree - Hillsborough, NC

Great advice, Bart. Haste makes waste every time. I was in a hurry to get going, but of course ended up taking much longer to fix the outcome of my rush. I actually just got back from a cat rescue and I was sure to lower the rope saver and climbing line down carefully this time.

Re: Eno River Tulip Tree - Hillsborough, NC

Awesome report! It's nice to have a story to go along with the tree. The crown is pretty craggy for what I assume to be a 140-150 year old tree. Do you often climb solo? Thanks, Brian. I climb solo out of desperation, not necessarily by preference. I recognize that it's not the safest way to climb,...

Re: Costa Rica Trees & Natural history #1

Bart,

Keep your posts coming - I really enjoy them. I can't wait to hear the story of your first 200 footer. When did you live in Chapel Hill? I work at UNC although I am from upstate NY.
