ENTS-

In N Ohio, the site that holds the state height record white pine at 156' has a tulip at 163'----I think for our area tulips would have always been taller than white pines.

Steve,

I expect you are right, and that would hold even more as we move west. Moving eastward, the change comes in Pennsylvania.

Bob-

Yes, the change would likely come in PA, and probably due to summer heat. I think N OH on average is likely hotter in summer than the higher elevations in NC, and certainly more so than MA or PA.
