Re: even tree tops

Re: Potomac Palisades, DC

Darian, Great post! I was reviewing our records, and some of these trees are quite large compared to what we've previously measured. What kind of environment did the basswood, black locust, and white oak grow in? You mention some trees may have been planted or been left along fence lines, so I'm won...

Re: Updated maximum dimensions for West Virginia

Turner, Thanks for posting this update. The redcedar and shortleaf pine really jump out at me as impressive trees. I'm using this list to help update the eastern MaxList, and want to make sure I'm interpreting it correctly. Each row represents a single tree and not the largest dimensions of up to th...

Tom,

The sugar maple and shagbark really are enormous for anywhere. I'm really sorry I never made it out to that stand. I hope someone got some photos.
