Re: Oak ID help - Atlanta, GA

Eli,

From your pics, I think it is a Cherrybark oak (Quercus pagodafolia).

Live Oak: Historic Ecological Structures by Coder

Larry, Wondering if you knew about Dr. Kim Coder's (U of GA Forestry Dept) shared love for big Live oaks? http://www.warnell.uga.edu/news/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/Live-Oak-Keynote-pub.pdf I heard him say at a conference that he wasn't interested in any "small" stuff, that is, any trees less than 8...

Re: Moss Has Cloned Itself for 50,000 Years

Re: Historic Longleaf Pines

I HIGHLY recommend the book, Looking for Longleaf I also have read this book and second the recommendation. It is an interesting read. Larry- I'm thinking that you have germinated LL seed, true? If so, what have you done to release seedlings from the grass stage to the bottle brush stage of growth?...

Historic Longleaf Pines

Ed, NTS,

Here is a neat story regarding some historical Long leaf pines I recently came across; called the Boxed Pines in Southern Pines, NC. Perhaps some in the Carolinas are familiar (?)

Re: Oak Opening Project

Doug, Neat project here! There are a few of us that post or lurk this site that enjoy collecting and germinating tree/shrub seed! A couple of questions: Do you have a culling process for your seedlings? Have you considered planting other species in addition to the oaks? Do not be surprised if the se...

Re: Large American chestnut at Sheldon Marsh

Good find Steve. Why don't you gather some nuts and try to germinate?

Re: Hemlocks Still Abundant Despite Adelgid Infestation

Ed, This is an interesting find, but as I give more consideration, perhaps it should not be too surprising after all. The adelgid is an exotic insect pest with limiting factors contrasting a soil-born pathogen (think chestnut blight). I know that hemlock is a viable species in regards to regeneratio...
