Re: Any large forest grown live oaks?

The Florida Big Trees Website has multiple examples of forest grown live oaks of large size. Some are listed to 150' but I do not believe it for a minute. I can see a 100' tree being found some day but not many. Still think 92-3' is the tallest known. However, Jess hasn't posted on them in a while ;...

Re: A Mature Elm With a Big Lean

Rand,

Could have been planted under a large tree that made it "forage" for light across the open street, then when that was removed it sent reiterated trunks onto the gap above...

Just my first thought.

Re: Giant Koompassia excelsa trees

Very cool! I was fortunate to attend one of Roman Dial's presentations on these trees, and get an invite for a return measuring trip that for whatever reason was not completed. I recall Dr. Robert van Pelt surmising that this species is one of the few globally to reach 10,000 cubic feet- and have "r...

Impressive tightness there. Do you have plans to use a tree trunk or sprig next?

Re: Part 1- Carara NP: Costa Rica/Panama tree hunt March 201

Will, Super trees! Did you have difficulties in finding the highest twig through the rainforest canopy? Kouta Kouta, Yes indeed! Fortunately, much of the forest outside of Carara that we sampled was extremely steep, which offered a high perch to see the tops. I would say most numbers forthcoming in...

Re: Panama, Bart's latest Trip

Bart, Kouta, The optical image stabilization inherent in most modern cameras is tremendously helpful. The image after maximum zoom can then be further zoomed in for details in the playback mode.

Re: Panama, Bart's latest Trip

Bart, Fantastic! I have such fond memories of the Scorpion Bar- best damn chicken, rice and beans ever. Even the Imperial beer hit the spot. Anyway, it seems the Central American Rucker (and perhaps Panama alone) should be close to 200 now, given the number of trees over 190' and three (?) known ove...
