Re: Atlanta city Rucker Height Index - January 2012

Eli,

That's an impressive list. Are there anymore sites left in Atlanta to explore? I'm surprised to see that white oak is the 2nd tallest species for the city. Great job.

Re: Smedley Park, Delaware Co., PA

George, That is an amazingly tall American Chestnut. The leaves look right. Did you find any signs of chestnut burrs? The tallest we have in our database is 106 feet tall in Cicero in Washington State. This is the tallest known in the east in the tree's native range, as far as I can tell. Spectacul...

Re: Smedley Park, Delaware Co.

George, Congratulations! You are a one man army. I'm blown away with what you are finding in southern PA. Who would have thought? Your sites are giving us an entirely different perspective on what the mid-Atlantic states can grow. You should consider writing an article for the Bulletin of the Easte...

Thanks Ryan. I'm sure you'll have plenty of great reports cause there ain't no cure once you get the measuring bug. Seriously!

Re: Tyler State Park, Pa.

[quote="sjhalow"]George, An excellent site report. I really like those Green Ash. The one over 130' must be a state height record or close to it. I don't find to many of them where I'm at, seems like the vast majority in SW Pa are White Ash. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong places. Steve, Thanks. I've...

Re: Tyler State Park, Pa.

George, Another impressive report. I wish there was something we could do to give you more recognition for the work you are doing. Ed Ed, Your kind words are more than enough. I enjoy locating and documenting these sites. The thrill of the hunt I suppose. The reward for me is a day spent in the woo...

Re: Tyler State Park, Pa.

Thanks for the detailed report and images! I'm surprised to hear of so many big tulips in one park in PA. Sounds like a place worth traveling to see. Dan, I'm finding that SE Pa. has lots of big tulips. Some sites may have only one while the larger sites may have dozens. The closer you get to Phila...
