Gee...I wonder why ENTS is not taken very seriously by natural resource managers...

Re: Gnarly pine on Stone Mountain

Will, One of the other regions that I had in mind where stunted loblolly occur is in Assateague National Seashore along Maryland's Eastern shore. Part of this park includes portions of Virginia (see Chincoteague, VA). http://www.nps.gov/asis/naturescience/treesandshrubs.htm Assateague is an interest...

Re: Gnarly pine on Stone Mountain

I have never heard of stunted montane P. taeda. Do you know of sites with confirmed populations? Will, I must confess from the onset that I mistakenly thought that the originator of this thread was refering to Stone Mountain Park in Atlanta, Georgia and NOT North Carolina. Never the less, here are ...

Re: Drunk Moose OK After Sliding Out of Tree

Ed,

Is there any truth to the rumor that the moose fell out of his deer-stand?

Sorry, but I felt the need to ask!

Re: Gnarly pine on Stone Mountain

Brian, That's most likely Table Mountain Pine. I think that the those small pines on top of Stone Mountain are actually a stunted form of Loblolly (Pinus taeda). If memory serves, at the top is an overlook center that contains some educational panels explaining the ecological/geological features of ...

Re: At the Marsh

Jenny/Randy/Larry, Since this thread concerns wildlife pics, I thought that I would share one with you that I recently encountered while going to look at a customer's tree in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. I saw him at the customer's trash can and he came up to meet me in the driveway! Needless to say, I to...

Re: Ms Rattlesnakes

Larry/Randy, It is said that during the early days of this country, the settlers kept hogs around not only for pork but also for snake control around the homestead. They are (has been earlier stated) effective at keeping the snakes away. We have plenty of rattlesnakes (Timber rattlers) here in the s...

Re: Laurel Fields, Sigel, PA June 2011

Ed,

Thanks for posting these pics. The Mountain laurel in this area (Tennessee side of GSMNP) typically bloom in May. They do put on the show!
