Jess- When I came up to NC and SC I was just amazed at how tall the trees were. Every time I went in the Forest they had to contain my excitement. Will and company were great and it was such a pleasure to be part of the A-Team. I hope to get back up some time and enjoy the great tall trees of your region. The minerals really make for some super fertilizer. Mid Ms. has tons of Limestone and great soil helping our trees clip along. Some day if they let them grow long enough they may tie some of your records.

Jess,

Correct- I thought they were green ash until Bob Dellinger concluded otherwise. The hairy undersides of the leaves and more obovate shape are very clearly different then the glossy, pointy and nearly glabrous green ash leaflets up north. I hope Brian found some leaves yesterday!

I couldn't reach any twigs from the ash trees without risking tumbling down an high embankments into Big Creek. The ash do not grow on the alluvial flats like I thought they did. They stop on a small bluff just slightly above the alluvial flats. Three more knowledgable tree enthusiasts than I all agree on Biltmore ash. They still don't look like the Biltmore ash I've seen but that may just be a case of trees looking different in a different environment. Loblollies look a little different on the coast than they do inland. I prefer to call them Smoky Mt . Ash but they do key to Biltmore ash.
