Tulip trees

Post by sam goodwin » Sat Mar 19, 2011 8:16 am

While hiking in Farmington River Park in Bloomfield, I found a few tulip trees. I measured the biggest at 7'3" cbh and 86' high. I measured a oak at 11'3" cbh at 85' high. This forest area is a mixture of oak, white pine, a few beech, very few white birch, a fair number of black birch and some norway spruce. Some parts of this park is old tobacco fields with young growth and some older stands of white pine. This park also abuts active tobacco fields. Sam Goodwin

Nice finds Sam. I want to encourage you to post more when you get a chance.
