Re: New Tallest Sierra Lodgepole Pine

Duncan, I thought your opening post was perfectly clear. Within the context of the variety, the trees you measured are very tall. Even if they aren’t record setting, I think it’s good that you posted them. If you have a source saying 124’ was the record and I read something implying the species has ...

Re: New Tallest Sierra Lodgepole Pine

Duncan,

Sounds like a nice find. I measured three around the Bucks Lake Wilderness area at:
8'8" x 147.7'
10'4.5" x 147.8'
7'11.5" x 150.5'
I was under the impression those were tall for the variety, but still not record breaking.

Elijah,

Great to see an update from Green Lakes. That is such an impressive site, especially compared to the surrounding area. The American basswood is now the second tallest we have on record anywhere.

Bob,

Don's right, tuliptree does quite well on Crowley's Ridge. I've seen multiple stands with tuliptrees over 150'. I'll get to those write-ups eventually.

Larry, definitely a lot left to explore in Vicksburg.

Re: Howland's Island

The fruit definitely looks like shagbark. Twig size and canopy openness can also help distinguish them in person.

Elijah,

That Scots pine sounds like a really nice find. I've never heard of them that tall in this part of the world.

Re: Measuring the 8 greatest White Oaks of New Jersey

John,

I was going through our records, and these oaks measure up quite well against the largest we've seen in other states. Do you happen to have handy the date you measured each tree?

Re: Howland's Island

Elijah,

You're pulling more out of Howland Island than I ever thought we'd see. Nice work!

I'm not sure about the unknown tree. Maybe pear?

Re: The Big Pine and the Small Pine, Fine, NY

Elijah,

I'm updating the MaxList and want to make sure that Jack pine gets in there. Fine, NY on 11/29? Is the pine actually on the road edge or a little ways into the woods.

Thanks,
Jess
