Re: The sequoia with the greatest ground perimeter - 155 fee

My husband Peter was with the group that climbed the Stagg Tree in 1996, documented in "Tickle the Sky." At the time, Stagg was considered the sixth largest tree in the world at 243 feet. That film is out of print and no additional copies will be made (according to film maker David Stark), but if an...

Re: Durango Workshop

"Looking back on the Durango tree measuring workshop, it is apparent to me, that Inch by inch, we are accomplishing our mission."

Getting the recognition you -- and the trees -- deserve. Congratulations!

Re: Free climbing trees for science (sorta)

Here's Cam Williams's comment about the climb: I know the people from UC Berkeley that were involved, but I was not a part of this project myself. The climber featured is a world-class professional rock climber (Chris Sharma), who for the entire climb was on belay via a long rope over a pulley near ...

Re: Free climbing trees for science (sorta)

I just forwarded this post with a "what the hell?" to Cameron Williams. He's a PhD student at UC Berkeley studying water transport in redwoods. Some of you may remember his talk at our Rendezvous in 2013. I'll post his response.

New City and state Co-Champion Poplar

Last Saturday, we got a call from a homeowner reporting a tulip tree that was measured at 70" diameter by an arborist. 70"!! That number prompted me to call Eli, and so Eli, Peter and I went to see it on Monday. Eli's email to me on Tuesday morning: What a great tree! I'm still in awe. Tree data fro...

Re: Making my Invitation Public!

Atlanta, the most heavily-forested city in the United States, is always a great place for tree people to visit. Any time you guys want to have a workshop in the Deep South, we're game to host or help out. We have plenty of resources in the arborist and tree-lover communities, plenty of great forests...

Smartphone Apps of Potentisl Value to Ents

Virginia Tech's free vTree app is a pretty good identification app for iphones and androids. Michael--unfortunately vTech is available only for Android. I looked in the App store and on the Virginia Tech website. LeafSnap is indeed insufficient for treeID. Does anyone have any other ideas for a goo...

Re: Million Dollar Highway

When I crossed over Tioga Pass many years ago, it was a full moon night and we had to constantly dodge the rabbits on the road. Pretty cool.
