Re: Atlanta city Rucker 10 index

I also found a new "fattest" tuliptree in the city limits of Atlanta. It is a 17'2" x 119' tall gnarly beast of a tree in the Virginia Highlands neighborhood just a stone's throw from Piedmont Park.

Based on a couple of recent finds including a 132' Scarlet Oak, 126.6' Winged Elm, a 129' Beech, an updated 142' Pignut Hickory plus a spectacular 164.6' Tuliptree (first tree over 160' in metro-Atlanta and possibly the tallest tuliptree at a latitude this far south- Jess?), Atlanta's Rucker 10 inde...

Re: VA State Champion Northern Red Oak 11/28/2010

wow- once again, egregious errors on a state list!!

there is a legit 400 point Quercus rubra adjacent to Emory University that I just nominated as a GA state champ. It's about the same height as this one, maybe a tad more. 20' 1/2" CBH. I'll post a pic when I get a chance.

Re: Georgia Height max list and R10

James- I actually work for the organization that owns the forest and therefore have been fortunate enough to spend a lot of (work) time there. The forest is now open on Saturdays from 10am-5pm, but closed Sundays. It's also open 2-5pm on weekdays (after school groups leave). If you ever want to visi...

Re: Georgia Height max list and R10

I'm not familiar with the species, but I had a feeling it was synonymous. Those came from 2 separate lists from Jess. I'll be sure to fix it.

Will- did you find any bigger Shortleafs on one of your trips to GA this year?

Re: Georgia Height max list and R10

Note that I have more detailed Excel spreadsheets that go 4 or 5 trees deep for numerous species, but to make the data more digestible I only listed the tallest individual of each species. I also have additional details on the measurer, date of measurement, and location spec's as well. I keep pretty...

Re: Beecher Hills, Atlanta, GA

Bob, In a strange way I think the development of Atlanta both pre and post Civil War helped protect these pockets of old growth and semi-old growth in the city limits. Had these spots been further outside the perimeter, they might have quickly been logged, farmed, or later turned into strip malls, p...
