Re: Tall Liriodendron in the Green River Gorge.

Bob,

I documented a site a couple of weeks ago that may very well be Delaware's TT super site. Is Neil interested in the top 5 girths as well? Where do I send the data?

The upper half of the island has very little understory and large canopy gaps likely due to repeated flooding. P1020436 Stitch.jpg The lower half r...
