Re: BB #2 and beyond

Bob,

do you think that the FS model tends to work better for conifers vs angiosperms (on average) or is the sugar maple just an outlier? Or is it just too early to ask such a question?

Re: Kentucky Coffeetrees in Michigan

Elijah, thanks for bringing up that article as I hadn't seen it yet. Really amazing that most of the eastern populations are very small isn't it? I remember visiting several eastern Iowa river floodplain areas while looking for swamp white oak acorns and I was amazed at how common honeylocusts were ...

Re: Torrey Pines, CA

NTS, one of the fun things about visiting a place so different from where I grew up and where I now live is that you get to feel a little like a kid again because you know next to nothing about the new environment. The Torrey Pines live among many other unusual plants within a rare type of chaparral...

Torrey Pines, CA

NTS, back in February of 2017 I was able to visit San Diego for a conference and I had a day to visit Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve. This Reserve is about 2000 acres and is well known as the home of the rarest pine in North America, the Torrey Pine. According to "Conifers of North America" by R...

Re: Connecticut's Champion Trees

Joshua, I knew you lived close to Connecticut but I didn't realize you were that close. I'm less than 15 miles due East of Providence so I'm not that far either, but I'm certainly farther than you. Luckily CT is a small state so it doesn't take long to get to any part as long as you avoid times of h...

Re: Connecticut's Champion Trees

Joshua,

count me in. I've visited some of the champion oaks and I'd like to remeasure all of their oaks as a start. My wife grew up in Storrs and her dad still lives there so we visit frequently.

Re: Volume Measurement of Gene's Oak

Joshua, it's nice to see northern red oak as your first really big tree to measure for volume. I've long thought that this species could compete with white pine and tuliptree if we're talking about mass...at least for the northeastern US. Of the other trees that you mentioned, I think white ash woul...

Re: Michigan List

Dwain, yes, at the moment it is mostly a tall tree list but even some of the height measurements are quite low...they just give me and others something to shoot for. The MSU research area in SW Michigan is Russ Forest and the tallest tuliptrees there are about 150' tall which is pretty much what man...

Re: Atlantic white-cedars in Brendan Byrne SF, NJ

I never replied to Elijah or Erik regarding a couple of questions that they had here. I'll take a stab at them now. Elijah, I've thought about your question about Atlantic white-cedar forests vs northern white-cedar forests for a few years now. It's a little funny that neither of these species is a ...

Re: Warren Woods State Park, MI

NTS, I just edited the original post by changing the only white oak measured to chinkapin oak. When we first measured this tree in 2006 I had no idea it was actually a chinkapin oak but suspicions began to creep in over the years when I read of chinkapin oak in Warren Woods and I ran into several ch...
