Re: Tall hophornbeam in Bolton

Jared,

Could be a huge find but I think that is a Tilia...

Maybe it's the photo quality but the bark and crown form does not look like Ostrya. However, I could be wrong here!

Re: Help with Maryland Tree Id's

Yup- sassafras. I find adding scratch-and-sniff to help with ID skills is very useful in the eastern forests.

Re: Help with Maryland Tree Id's

2) Chestnut oak

Scott Wade has one over 135' from what I recall. Planted in a tight grove I have no doubt they could reach 200'. There have got to be bigger ones in the Orient.

Re: Cathedral of the 'Pines' Berkshires

Joe, I think you are referring to Mario Vaden. Yes, his photography is outstanding. He makes excellent use of his women models. In Mario's images, thank God we don't see any naked ladies piled into the back of a pickup truck. Huh? By contrast, Mario's female beauties perfectly accent the enormity a...

Re: Yard Tree Stories

Matt,

Re: Big Creek

Brian,

I'm not convinced you measured the Tree Amigos... Josh Kelly and I measured them a few years back and they were going strong. All three are in an almost dead straight line with two of them side-by-side. Do these look familiar?

Elijah,

53' is the tallest witch-hazel I know of. Jess Riddle probably has a taller one somewhere. 40' is pretty good though!
