Re: Vesco Mortuus, Eastern White Pine, Maryland

Chris, Yes it does have some damage at its base, its lost a couple of lower branches and exposed a somewhat hollow portion behind it. Reminds me of the story a few months back where the model burned down america's oldest tree when she was lighting up her drugs. The old hollowed out cypress acted lik...

Vesco Mortuus, Eastern White Pine, Maryland

I know these measurements are not comparable to the national champion Eastern white Pine in New Hampshire, but it is more than just girth that makes this tree interesting to me. Its circumference is larger than any White pine recorded in Maryland since they started in 1925 at 186”. Its crown spread ...

Re: Maryland’s largest striped maple tree in Druid Hill Park

The whole native/ non native doesn't really apply so much in that this tree seems to be part of an abandoned arboretum or garden. there are many trees in this area that were clearly hand plantes by someone.

I was assuming he was talking about southern prickly ash. Thanks for the clarification. Here are the Coordinates 39 2.325,-...
