Zane,

  Welcome aboard. We're your big tree family now.

   I'm especially excited that you are going to Colorado State. Oh boy, the possibilities are endless there. Of course, they don't compare with the giant West Coast trees, but the opportunities for firsts is unsurpassed. I've attached a list of our current WNTS exploits in Colorado. I hope you can break every record and keep the action going. I have no idea what can be pulled out of the Front Range, but the San Juans in the southwestern corner of the state has proven a goldmine. We haven't even scratched the surface.

   Maybe you can join us next June for our annual WNTS rendezvous to be held in Durango, CO. Live Oak champ Larry Tucei will be coming from Mississippi, Lee Frelich from the University of Minnesota, Dave Stahle from the University of Arkansas, and others. We'll be teaming up with the San Juan National Forest to document the best of the best. We's sure like to have you join us.

   Again, welcome aboard.

Bob

Zane,

Welcome to the Native Tree Society.  I look forward to reading your posts and about your exploits.  Now that you have succumb to Bob Leverett's evil plot, you are done for.

Zane,

You've been "Leverette'd". Yes, it is now a verb.

Welcome!

Ed and Will,

Aw shucks, fellows, Zane won't have to work too hard. A new champion no more frequently than once monthly would be an acceptable, laid back schedule, don't you think?

Here's a photo from the day I first met you and your family. At Prairie Creek redwoods.

Welcome Zane and great work!  If you are ever in the Southeast (Smokies, N. Georgia, Congaree Swamp, etc.), then we can certainly show you some spectacular southern specimens... though don't expect anything over 200 feet!

The sycamore was 178.2', but if there is no top damage, I don't see why it can't reach 180'! I plan on measuring it with Impulse every year, because until its top breaks, it will be the record-holder for the tallest sycamore ever recorded. I want to study the limits of sycamore height, and this is a perfect specimen to do that with.
