Any Data Out There For Amelanchier/Serviceberry

NTS, I’m looking for data on amelanchier/seviceberry. There seems to be next to nothing here on the web. A little story why. I’m an avid shed hunter. I collect the antlers of white tailed deer. The bucks cast/drop their antlers in late winter to early spring. Back in late March of 2019 I was driving...

Re: Metasequoia Glyptostroboides (Dawn Redwood)

Brian, I commend you on your efforts to document Metasequoia Glyptostroboides. It’s an impressive species. Since it’s introduction into the United States I believe timing of planting and location are key factors for maximum dimensions. I have mentioned a specimen before with such dimensions. It’s he...

Re: Who wants to check out a big Chestnut Tree?

Dale, Keep me in mind as I am only two hours drive away from that location. It would be awesome to finally meet up with you. Now a days I have a flexible calendar. Especially after September. I am a little hesitant only because I’ve seen some fat, low branching exotic chestnuts here in southeast Pa....

Re: Douglas Fir, A-B Tech, Asheville, NC

Brian, Very nice specimen. I have seen taller here. Seems to have some girth to it. 90% of the western evergreen species I see here in the northeast max out around 6-7’ in CBH, excluding arboretums. What’s the girth on that beast??? They never seem to do well unless planted in forest situations. Geo...

Re: Copper Beech in Chatham on the Cape

Patty

I would have been in the same predicament driving. Brian, I can see why you refer the branch as a leader in the second photo enlarged? Regardless that beech must have a maximum spread for the species.

Re: tall black cherry re-measures

Dale,

Awesome!!! Man I'd love to see them Cook black cherries. Here in the southeastern corner of Pa the max height is around 110'. Its been awhile since we've compared notes. Shoot me an email and maybe we can update the state Rucker Index.

Re: LiDAR Coverage for the Eastern USA

I tried to process Patapsco Valley State Park and rolled snake eyes. The LiDAR is missing crown data and basically 2-dimenstional. The only LiDAR set I could find for that area is from 2004 and of the lowest resolution I've seen. Will have to wait until higher resolution LiDAR comes out. Sorry I co...

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

I see that there is a Tuliptree Nature Preserve at the far west part of the park. The tallest hits are not located in the nature preserve so I would guess that area has some age. Brian, The preserve states that the oldest trees are 190-220 years old. I would say there are pockets of trees in the sa...
