Re: Can not ID this tree!!

Looks like a norway maple to me. The base appears to have been girdled by something such as a large tire or such.

Re: Spiders in pines

Here's another spider pic. It's a spider on a cold day at Ridley Creek State Park, Pa. Ed, do you know what kind of rock the spider is on? Feldspar?

Re: Spiders in pines

Steve,

Nice picture. Here's a pic of a spider I saw in Oahu, Hawaii a few years ago. It was as large as my hand.

Here is a pic of a large millapede from Valley Forge National Park. Notice the dead ant above it for scale.

Re: Tulips of Stanley Park

Sam, The damage you speak of I'm assuming is from the October snow storm of 2011. We didn't have much damage here in SE Pa. On the drive up to my Aunts for Thanksgiving dinner I noticed a lot of white dots dotting the hill sides. Broken limbs from the storm. Some areas were more severe than others a...

Is This A Red Hickory?

NTS, I found a hickory while documenting a site today but I'm not certain if it's a pignut or red hickory. The bark is thick and somewhat shaggy. The fruit is round with a thin husk and the nut is not angled. I know there has been some discussion in the past about pignut vs red. I have two questions...

Re: Boston Run, CVNP

Steve, Great pics and post. Ever since I've become an NTS member I've been searching/documenting woodlands with the largest/tallest trees. Even though I have documented a few I have sometimes felt disappointment when in a woodlot with trees that are less than 8' in girth and around 100' tall. My mot...

Re: Bacon Woods & Vermilion River

Steve, Great pics of some very respectable trees. I especially liked the pin oak and sassafras. Forest grown sassafras of those dimensions are rare. I was in a small preservered woodlot back in early May that had trees of similar dimensions. Primarily of beech, oak, and tulip. All had girths over 10...

Re: Brandywine Creek State Park's Tulip Poplars

Very interesting site. I was forwarded this link by the Brandywine Creek Park Naturalist. I am a biologist with Delaware State Parks and we have been doing invasive species control in Tulip Tree Woods in Brandywine Creek State Park for around 10 years. I have some data about this forest (and the pa...

Re: Brandywine Creek State Park's Tulip Poplars

Wow! There just aren't many places with so much quantity and quality. I'm astounded that such a fine collection exists just outside of Delaware's capital. Are all of the tuliptrees in the tuliptree preserve or do they spill over into other areas of the park? Brian, The park was formerly owned by th...
