Re: Sky Lake Mississippi

Bbeduhn- After becoming inspired about cypress I did a little research and found this great publishing. It mentions the Four Holes swamp as having "giant columnar trees", and one of the few virgin stands that actually had desired timber. It goes into detail on how the trees location affects its grow...

Sky Lake Mississippi

I had the pleasure of visiting sky lake, near Greenwood MS the other day. Sky lake was once part of the ms river and now is a oxbow lake. The area was high graded in the past but still has some ancient, gnarly relics. The kiosk there said that these trees were some of the oldest bald cypress that ex...

Microscopic pollen

Some attempts at capturing this years invasion of pollen. I am assuming pollen distinction is unique upon genera, not species. Pine by far has the largest and most abundant pollen, with weird bug eyes. Dandelion was surprisingly unique and spikey, as well as mayapple and sweetgum with bulbous protru...

Re: Backpacking Redwood National Park

Re: The epic mother-load of Carolina hemlock

Wow thats really exciting. Does anyone have a guess why stands like this one (especially with larger, older trees) have not been decimated by HWA? The trees in photo 13s look impeccable. Hypervirulence? Elevation?

Guadalupe Mts National Park

Guadalupe Nat Park is located in very western Texas on the border with New Mexico. The terrain is very diverse, ranging from desert chaparral to douglas fir (and supposingly engelmann spruce) forest at 8500ft. The area is part of the Capitan reef formed 250 million years ago and is one of the worlds...

Re: Spicebush and winterberry in eastern Massachusetts

Doug,
Thanks for giving these species recognition. That skunk cabbage gives great contrast to all those naked trees.
