Re: Mass. height record for Cucumber Magnolia?

Andrew,

just this month I saw a very nice cucumber magnolia in Wellesley. Probably not as tall as the one you found...I was thinking it might be lucky to make 100' but I'm still not great at estimating heights. It is very fat though...maybe even as much as 12' or so. Worth a measure.

Re: Eastern Massachusetts 130.5' white pine 3/21/10

Andrew, I'm interested in checking out that 130.5' white pine with you. I would also like to recheck a white pine that I measured with Ellen in January of 2009. We came up with 128.9' for that tree but when I was going through my notes I noticed that I didn't add the 0.5' for the lower shot...this p...

Re: A nice swamp white oak---

I like to look up into the branches of open grown trees to look at their bark. Swamp white oaks generally have that nice, distinctive peeling bark that looks alot like birch bark. If the branches are too high, like in a forest, I like to use binoculars to get a close up view of the bark way up there...

Re: Big Bur Oak

Turner, I'm happy that you measured this tree. I saw the tree in October of 2002 when I collected some acorns from it...actually most were collected by the owner and he saved them for us. I took a few pictures of the tree but they are all slides. I'm hoping to get a scanner next month so I can start...

Re: Tall European trees

Kouta, when I'm in Germany I'll be visiting Kelheim and the Weltenburger Enge with family. I'm hoping to measure the tall European ashes of this region. I found the same paper on the ashes of Germany online that you did and I'm trying to figure out the exact location of the tallest ash. It seems tha...

Updating the MAX list

ENTS, I just wanted to bring this topic up again so we didn't just let it slide. I believe Eli Dickerson brought this topic up recently. I wrote down the names of people that volunteered to keep state lists...so here they are: Eli Dickerson - Georgia (possibly with Jess Riddle) Darian Copiz - Distri...
