Hemphill Ash

Been slowly organizing my photos and came across these. Immediately thought of youse folk.

I know personal at GSMNP has mapped at least portions of this grove, but was wondering if anybody at NTS has measured these beautiful specimens. For white ash, these are huge! Many dominant the canopy like a poplar would. Besides a nasty hog infestation the area is beautiful, and is in wake of EAB. Sorry if this has been done, but does anybody know if this place has gotten any recognition?

Devin,

Yes, they have been measured. I have been trying to get Jesse into this grove to treat for EAB but he can never seem to find it. The tallest ones are a touch under 160' tall. Superlative black birch, red oak and buckeye also can be found. Also a HUGE hophornbeam on the trail just below the cherry you posted a picture of...

You missed a big one.
