Re: My first "big" tree catch!

That doesn't look quite like NRO to me; more like a red/black hybrid or something. Maybe it's just regional variation, but the bark looks different and the leaf shape and thickness are slightly different from what I'm used to with NRO.

Re: Quercus bicolor trunk in 3D

photos from four quadrants would be nice, but at times nearly impossible in deep woods.

Re: New dbh champ for SESE

I was wondering how showing a photo of a tree in the woods could possibly compromise its location until Erik mentioned that another person could recognize it and publicize the location. I don't know how often that would happen, but I suppose it could. I think most of the trees I've found have been s...

Re: Beautiful OG forest within Nashville city limits

There's actually quite a bit of scattered old-growth patches across the ridges in Percy Warner, it's just that most people don't recognize it. I've been through about a third of the tract a few years ago, I didn't see the biggest trees they show, but saw some nice stuff. I grew up just a couple of m...

Turner Sharp has numbers for a blackgum of 15'8" in circumference here: http://www.ents-bbs.org/viewtopic.php?p=4905

I know I've seen a photo of it somewhere but haven't found it again yet.

Trees or forests near St. Petersburg?

I'm going to be staying a few days in St. Pete's next weekend, and I should have at least a little bit of time to look around. Does anyone know of any trees to see species to look for, or parks to visit around there? I've got no idea what's there...

Re: Yet another hybrid oak

It certainly looks like a hybrid, but I wonder if it is with post or bur because of the kind of squareness at the end of a few lobes. But really, sometimes it's nearly impossible to tell.

Re: Volunteers needed for big tree certification

Sorry I missed this for a few days, I'm certainly in, though WNC is heavily represented, perhaps I can hit some in Tennessee at times, and if I'm traveling I'm happy to detour...
