Hello Jack,

Great job finding these trees! That's a pretty gnarly looking cedar. Thanks for posting the info, and best of luck in your hunt for more finds.

You're welcome. I think Dr. Neil Pederson intends to contact you and perhaps invite you to visit Harvard Forest. If you don't hear from him within the next 3 or 4 weeks, please let me know. Best to communicate with me through my primary email account: dbhguru@comcast.net.

Another dendro scientist who is interested in your find is Dr. David Stahle, Director of the Tree-Ring Laboratory at the University of Arkansas. Looks like you've struck paydirt.
