I signed up like 7 months ago, but I never actually got around to posting. I was also a mostly a lurker back in the day of the old mailing list [pre google group], posting only a few times.
I am Chris and originally from Ohio [Great to see all the action it has been getting...saw almost to 100 ft Ohio Buckeye!]. I have lived in eastern Tennessee, Nevada, and the Ozarks of Missouri. I have also had the pleasure to have spent in total [on a few different occasions] 1.5 years traveling around the US/Canada, backpacking, birding, and seeing lots of different forest and trees... actually currently traveling.
hopefully, someone I will get a chance to post some more. For example, I don't think there have been anything about those very interesting "Mexican" pine - oak woodlands of the southwest US or the odd blending of east and west along the Niobrara River [Paper Birch, Black Walnut, Ponderosa Pine, etc...].
