Editor’s Corner
By Edward Frank

Each month I try to figure out what to post as an editorial introduction to that month’s issue. It is difficult because I have lived with the months worth of posts to the BBs. I read them all and respond to many of them. Sometimes an event or find really stands out and that can be the subject of the editorial. Sometimes it is some organizational structure discussion or change I want to emphasize. I admit at times I have simply chosen one of Robert Leverett’s discussions of the past and future of the NTS and use that as a de facto guest editorial. That is what I originally intended to do this month, with his overview of the big MTSF Advanced Tree Measuring workshop. But, events overtook that intention.

We had a fantastic Advanced Tree Measuring Workshop conducted by Robert Leverett at Mohawk Trail State Forest http://www.ents-bbs.org/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=4592

We had poetry by Ryan leClair – The Moosewood Tree http://www.ents-bbs.org/viewtopic.php?f=317&t=4495
Tom Howard Posted a series of reports from upstate New York: http://www.ents-bbs.org/viewtopic.php?f=105&t=4595
The was a series on the Evaluation of various types of laser rangefinders: http://www.ents-bbs.org/viewtopic.php?f=235&t=4585
A really important consideration for the NTS is the beginnings of listing the various groups the NTS has worked with and with whom we have had informal or formal partnerships: http://www.ents-bbs.org/viewtopic.php?f=281&t=4560
Michael Taylor found another record – the new world’s tallest Sugar Pine 264' (80.4m) the "Sugar Tower". http://www.ents-bbs.org/viewtopic.php?f=69&t=4588
A beautiful series of photos and reports from Colorado by James Robert Smith starting with: http://www.ents-bbs.org/viewtopic.php?f=70&t=4583
Michael Gatonska continued his series of natural soundscapes with Thumper Mountain Sunrise: http://www.ents-bbs.org/viewtopic.php?f=246&t=4608
New member Zane Moore post about the tallest hardwoods he has found in west coast with some new height records: http://www.ents-bbs.org/viewtopic.php?f=69&t=4601
An article appeared in the National Park Travelor Tallest Native Hardwood Tree In North America Is Located In A National Park
Submitted by Jim Burnett on October 24, 2012 featuring the tallest tuliptree found by NTS last spring. http://www.ents-bbs.org/viewtopic.php?f=297&t=4632
Our European contingent, with Kouta Rasanen, Joroen Philippona, and Michael Spraggon started a series of posts on a summer expedition to the Balkans in several former Yugoslav republics: http://www.ents-bbs.org/viewforum.php?f=386 including the Sgerm Spruce which is the tallest native European tree: http://www.ents-bbs.org/viewtopic.php?f=386&t=4642
Mario Vaden reports on his discovery of a new Maple height record for Bigleaf maple: The Humbolt Honey at 157.8 ft. in northern California: http://www.ents-bbs.org/viewtopic.php?f=69&t=4644
Brian Beduhn posted about numerous trips this month and included excellent photos of the Middleton oak and Angel Oak in South Carolina: http://www.ents-bbs.org/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=4582
There were many more posts by people new to the organization and by NTS founders Robert Leverett and Will Blozan. There is just too may things that have happened in this past month that warrants mention that I simply can’t fit them all into on editorial. So I guess all of you will need to read this issue of the magazine and click on the incorporated links to read the full discussions, or visit the BBS at http://www.ents-bbs.org and dive into the discussions.

"I love science and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awe by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and revigorate it." by Robert M. Sapolsky
