The currrent Ohio maximum height list.

Post by Steve Galehouse » Mon Feb 24, 2014 7:13 pm

NTS-

With the recent finds by Matt and Rand, I've revised the Ohio maximum height list(attached). Ohio now has 10 native species of 140' or more, which gives the state a Rucker 10 of 150.01'

Steve,

I just read through the list and I have a couple quick comments. I was wondering why you have pignut hickory listed twice. My first thought was that maybe one of them was supposed to be red hickory but you also have used the same scientific name. Also, I only see one species of ash: white ash. I thought Rand or maybe someone else had measured green ashes and blue ashes as well. Maybe my memory is just playing tricks on me or maybe the numbers have just not been "officially" reported yet.

Doug-

Yes, there are some omissions on my part while assembling the list---green ash 109.6', blue ash 113.9'; I'll review and correct tomorrow.

Steve,

very cool! I was hoping you had some numbers on other ashes since they'll be gone soon if they aren't already. Blue ash, especially, seems like a good one to try and get good numbers on since Ohio should have some of the best anywhere...but not for long!

Steve,

Thanks for posting this. It will give me something to shoot for down here in SW Ohio.

The only addition I have for now is a 12.4' x 122.4' bur oak measured at California Woods Nature Preserve last year. This site is on my way home from work and I plan on getting some more measurements and doing a post on it in the near future. Here are the tallest heights I've measured so far at this site: 153.6' tuliptree, 147' American sycamore, 132.5' black cherry, and the 122.4' bur oak. I went ahead and entered these into the Trees database. Also, I should be able to beat the state maximum height for yellow buckeye.
