I agree Ed, it seems like wide open territory for sure. And harder then finding "big trees" because you just don't know the age until you core it [or have some historic evidence]. Some old twisted tree on a rocky mountain or a big huge forest specimen are what you mind goes to, but who knows? That Chesnut Oak pic shown is a great example. I would never have guessed 425 years!

I do hope someday you can check out the rest of my cores in the NPS archives. I am not sure if I mounted the cores from 220yr+ sourwood but I know where the tree is. Also, 99 year striped maple and mountain laurel from 1993.

jeez, 220 yr old sourwood? i do not recall seeing that in your cores [i still have some of them]. i will check. if not, a collection would be cool! a 99 yr striped maple is way cool, too.
