Re: LiDAR for Brandy Wine Creek SP - Tallest is 168 feet

Brian, The preserve states that the oldest trees are 190-220 years old. I would say there are pockets of trees in the sa...

Re: LiDAR for Brandy Wine Creek SP - Tallest is 168 feet

I had a request to process LIDAR returns for Brandy Wind Creek State Park. I get a number of trees over 160 feet, with the tallest emergent top being 168 feet. The attached height banding is green 20m, yellow 30m, red 40m and white is 50 meters. This is a tall forest with a nicely uniform canopy. M...

Re: What most impresses you?

Ray, I may have to agree with Don. As I glance through the forest and at first see an opening ,almost bare, in the understory do I truely look up. The crown spread of a dominant forest tree supresses most everything beneath it, at least here in the hardwoods of the northeast. A dominant shrub become...

You may know of a few sites I'm unaware of. I'd like to remeasure the likely national height record dawn redwood at the gates of Mount Cub...

I have documented several of the sites I've seen on the map and would have to say it underscored some sites but also warrants further investigation for others. County's I've doc...

Re: Cylburn Arboretum

Turner, Druid Hill Park, which is part of the Baltimore Zoo, is definitely worth investigating. In my case it's worth a sleepover. It's been on my hit list for years. I believe there is a connector trail from the zoo to the arboretum. I believe the park is second to the Philadelphia Zoo as far as ag...

Re: New MA state champion yellow birch

Congrats to all involved in the discovery of this fine beast of a tree. It's a beauty!!! I've yet to find a mature specimen of Betula alleghaniensis here in southeastern Pa., although i have only seen them on two different sites. Max height in the 60's. Always in the bottoms of spring fed streams. I...
