Re: Largest elm in NY

Morgan,

I love American elms. It's a beauty! Is it a fused double stem? There is a line from near its base to the first crotch.

Re: American Hornbeam

Morgan,

Welcome to NTS. You certainly seem to know your trees. The question I have for you is do you know of any exceptional forest/woods/wooded ravines near where you live. Wow, a national champion! Would love to see a photo on the BBS.

Re: Exceptional forests in the Black Hills?

Jess, My brother in law grew up in the Black Hills and gave me three sites off the top of his head. His first choise is Sylvan Lake. It has a good trail system and is loaded with ponderosa pine. Another site is Harney Peak. It's the highest point between the Rocky and Pyrenees mountains. The last si...

Re: Short visit to Mamouth Cave National Park

Turner,

They are all impressive trees. Do you have any photos? The largest Virginia pine I've seen is just over 6' in girth. Thanks for sharing.

Re: The Ash Search Has Begun

Bob,

Just curious. How many confirmed 140' white ash did you find. I may have found another site while scouting last month with four white ash to reach 140' in height. One for sure, the others will be close. I did straight up laser shots. I'll confirm after leaf drop.

Re: Pleistocene Chestnut Woodlands

I planted 3 of those 15/16 chestnuts given out to a group of foresters in western Mass. by the ACF. Two of the three are now showing some bark damage to the bottom of the stems. The trees are about 3' tall. I have no clue if its the blight or some damage by animals. The trees have rabbit fence arou...

Re: Anyone know this tree?

Ray,

The leaves look like Castor aralia (Kalopanax septemlobus) to me. The tree is native to Asia and is the largest member of the aralia family. Branches and stems are covered with thorns and become less prominent on older bark. Another feature are spurs with purple terminal buds.
