Re: Big Tree

Hi Jim,
Just noticed this post. That White Pine sounds amazing! I make it up to North Georgia every month or two and would love to measure this tree. Feel free to email me if you want: eli_dickerson@yahoo.com

Re: Atlanta city Rucker Height Index - January 2011

The new tuliptree and white oak sound very impressive. I think Overton Park in Memphis is the only place where I've seen a comparable forest grown white oak. Jess Jess- this White Oak blew me away. The bole was the most impressive I've seen anywhere. Virtually no taper. 1st branch about 70-80 up. B...

Re: Bulloch Hall, Roswell, GA

Wow- 99' is amazing! That grove in Roswell is so neat. The bloodroot was already blooming and I could barely take a step without crushing it. Also the hepatica was still in full bloom- just gorgeous. I was surprised to see the Bigleafs both on the shady and sunny sides of the slope. Of course it wil...

Re: Atlanta city Rucker Height Index - January 2011

Will, there's GOT to be taller Tulips in Aville, right? Having a Pignut Hickory at the top is unexpected, but they do get quite tall.

Re: Atlanta city Rucker Height Index - January 2011

Steve- your list is quite impressive! I was surprised to see only one Oak species though and is there no White Pine in your area? BTW- our few Cottonwood trees in riparian areas are about 125' max as well. The Beech, Hickory, Tuliptree, and Red Oak are amazingly tall for your latitude! Bob- I think ...

Re: Atlanta city Rucker Height Index - January 2011

Good Lord that's cold! It's been spring-like here in Atlanta for almost a month. Wildflowers are up and many trees are flowering and leafing out. Can't remember the last frost or freeze we had. Dry and 60's/70's until today when it was a brisk 44 degrees :) If I've learned anything from tree hunting...

Re: Bulloch Hall, Roswell, GA

That's it. I'm very fortunate to work in that forest. A great spot to visit- very little visitation. Kind of a hidden gem.

Re: Atlanta city Rucker Height Index - January 2011

Found another wonderful tuliptree today. City champion at 354.5 Big Tree Points . Second documented tree in Atlanta city limits over 160'- this one came in at 166' tall x 14' 3.5" CBH , and 69' average spread. Simply amazing for an urban tree, though it was in a forested riparian buffer. Also found ...

Re: Middleton and Angel Oaks

I wanted to not believe the hype about this tree for some reason, but alas I have to agree with you. The Angel Oak is truly the most beautiful oak tree I've ever seen. I try to visit everytime I see family in Charleston.

Re: Bulloch Hall, Roswell, GA

Dan- if you or anyone else plan to visit the Atlanta area I could give you a shortlist (or long list) of amazing greenspaces with numerous champion trees. Many of these spots I found out about from other people, so I'm always happy to share these "secrets".
