Re: Mick Jett, a novelist

Mick,

You mean a White oak (Quercus alba) http://tufc.com/registries.html.

Turner--I think the "tulip oak" is one of those new hybrids that is currently the rave! :)

Re: A bit of a mystery hickory

Will,

I'm leaning towards a big pignut (Carya glabra). Specially with that tight-web bark feature.

Re: New disease could wipe out English oak

The article says the current suspicion is focused on a bacterial cause, but jeez that looks eerily similar to the sudden oak death killing oaks (Phytophthora ramorum) out in california. Rand--this is my reaction as well. The pics look like Sudden Oak Disease to me as well. A lot of nursery stock (p...

Re: Management of Forests for Deer?

Jenny, White-tail deer management has an interesting history. It was not that long ago (around the 1920s) that white-tail was considered extinct in many states. An aggressive management program (and highly successful may I add) was instituted for its re-introduction. Here is a link regarding white-t...

Re: 800-Year-Old Red Cedar Tree Hacked Down

Unfortunately, this is old news. Poaching of choice timber from public lands (Fed and State level lands) has been occurring for a good while.

Re: Norway Spruces Behaving Strangely

David, Asexually propagate the tree, name it and apply for a patent http://www.uspto.gov/web/offices/pac/plant/ , then promote the tree to local growers, letting them propagate your tree while providing an agreed upon percentage of the profits from any sales to you. Good luck on your tree! Steve Spr...

Re: my native Sitka Spruce

Well, this is an interesting question. Perhaps you should secure legal representation and gain education regarding the tree laws of your state. Tree laws vary from state to state and can be a little tricky so you need to know what you are doing before you do anything. (just saying)

Re: Daniel Boone Carving on Beech Tree, TN

ENTS, I think that a couple of Boone Beeches are being confused. The one that JohnHagy is looking for in Eastern Tennessee (Washington County) is gone. The one cited by The Tennessee Urban Forestry Council http://www.tufc.com/registries.html is legitimate and is located in a farm field outside of Ja...
