Hi,

should the site treat Juglans cathayensis as a separate species or as Juglans mandshurica?

Thanks,

Hi Tim,

Kun jij duidelijkheid geven in het volgende. Ik heb ooit ten aanzien van bepaalde bomen overleg gehad met Owen, Conifers, Leo, Jeroen ea. Er is destijds geen uitsluitsel gekomen. Nu wil ik opnieuw naar de betreffende boom kijken met nieuwe informatie. Het is mij niet duidelijk hoe ik de oude gedachtewisseling kan terughalen zonder alle discussies langs te moeten scrollen. Is er een simpeler methode?

Groet

Wim

Hallo Wim,

als je het nummer van de boom of de locatie van de boom nog weet, kan je de zoekfunctie rechtsbovenaan gebruiken.

Normaal gezien verschijnt de discussie dan in de zoekresultaten.

Groeten,

Tim

New statistics
Visible for everyone · permalink · nl
Wim Brinkerink, at 2015-03-31 20:32:45, said:
Hi all,

I recently saw that Tim has added a survey on how we have rated trees. I see that I have rated quite extreme. I have rated a lot of 0,25 scores. I appreciate to inform you about the backgrounds of this extremity. i have often asked the contributors to confirm to the rating system that is intended. The rating is intended to rate the best PICTURE of a specific tree. To my depreciation too much people rate the statistics of a tree. They rate the fact that a tree is the biggest, tallest or oldest. That is not the purpose of the rating as Tim has repeatedly stated. Furthermore i have noticed that some people are extremely underrating quite beautiful trees, like red beeches or chopped limes. I have a habit of resisting and counterveiling these shortsighted people. So I underrate the trees that have no visual or Photographic value to try and restore the balance. Of course I realize I am fighting windmills, but I cannot withstand it. I am partly a Don Quichote who is mostly interested in the common intrest. And I am quite confident that I am able to see what is in our common intrest. Nevertheless, my urge to try to make the world better is declining. More and more I am backing off and let things happen the way they do. The older the wiser (or sadder? or cynical? )

Greetings to you all and no hard feelings to the short-sighted.

I wish you a very happy time with this database, nature, your love for trees and your conscience.

Wim


Jeroen Philippona, at 2015-04-17 10:47:48, said:
Hi Wim,

You were fighting perhaps only a few other persons at this website, as you can see when looking to the ratings. From the persons I looked for the ratings they gave to photograps, you and one other person were outnumbering all other participants by far. So it seems you were fighting only this person, who like you gave a lot of extreme ratings.

So don't think you were fighting me and some other participants who are interested in measurements of trees. The system wich Tim has created gives the possibility to view the trees in order of girth, height (and age if estimated or known), this is not interrupted by the rating of the photos.

That some contributors have rated photos of tall (and often forest grown) trees higher than others is strange. From my own photos the heighest rated are often photos of forest grown trees, espesially in primeval / old growth forests I visited in former Yougoslavia and Poland. It seems one or more contributors prefer such primeval forests over trees in an urban situation, but this has nothing to do with the quality of the photos.

I hope you can leave this now, because people who prefer picturesque open grown trees or good photos will easily find these when looking at MT.

Regards, Jeroen

Wim Brinkerink, at 2015-04-18 08:28:32, said:
Yes, I already had decided to leave it. It was a short hick up and need to explain my overdone rating.

And to Rainer. If you go to a person and see his contributions you see a graph in which the voting is registered.

I will not react on this issue anymore and won't start or mix in any discussion on rating again.

Deze haagbeuk staat langs een provinciale weg tussen de dorpskernen Walik en Steensel. De bewoner vertelde dat hij oorspronkelijk deel heeft uitgemaakt van een haag.

De stam is zeer fraai getordeerd, grotendeels hol en vol 'doorkijkjes'.

If there is enough space to keep this tree lying on the ground, it is still possible to keep it growing. I would consider to keep it. There is enough experience at the ancient tree forum to help you to deal with the technical aspects of keeping this tree.

Doubtful... Would be great if we could but many of the main roots are broken and in one case the breaking of one of the roots has partly severed the bottom of the trunk.

Wwhiteside,

As we all know trees do surprise us. Even fallen trees do live for decades in some occasions. There is a fallen Catalpa at Soestdijk palace gardens spared and still living! In Wertheim parks, Amsterdam there are a group of elms horizontally hanging over water!

This tree formes no danger to it's surroundings or the visitors of this park. Why not wait and see what happens?

Greetings, Martin

hello Karlheinz, this great tree is an Ulmus laevis, cheers, Leo

Karlheinz, at 2014-11-04 18:52:35, said:
Hi Leo, you could be right, the trunk with the many water veins looks like Ulmus laevis. But the leaves are different. I could compare directly with those of the 200 meters away Ulmus laevis '19794'. The leaves are thicker and solid, smoother the upper side, and the lower leaf surface shows the typical pattern of profiled Ulmus minor (it looks likehttp://www.baumkunde.de/Ulmus_minor/Blatt2/). But surely with the identification of the species I'm not. It would be good if you or someone else could check the tree on site!

regards

Karlheinz


Karlheinz, at 2014-11-06 20:55:01, said:
Leo,

please check out my additional photos of the leaves. I took a few home with me. The lower leaf surface shows a profiled or cracked pattern and I see silky hair tufts in the vein angles, focusing on the central vein. This is something I've only seen at Ulmus minor, is this also possible with Ulmus laevis?

hello Karlheinz,

your added leaf pictures show U. minor, but the leaves at your tree pictures are typical U. laevis.

I have added a photo showing an enlarged part of one of your tree pictures combined with a part of your collected-leaves pictures.

These cannot be from the same tree, because at the left side there are U. leaves trees and on the right side U. minor leaves.

U. laevis has much wider leaves with long curved teeth at the edges

U. minor has narrower leaves with short teeth

If this was a test, I hope I have passed, cheers, Leo


Karlheinz, at 2014-11-07 10:18:43, said:
I want to go there again and photograph leaves tomorrow. Is there still something else I should particularly look out for?

KoutaR, at 2014-11-07 11:17:27, said:
Most importantly, the leaves from fast growing sprouts or coppice shoots are unusable for identification - they readily result in missidentification. The best leaves are the subdistal ones (next below from the leaves at the shoot tip) from the short shoots (Kurztriebe) in the crown, including the lowest branches of the crown. Never leaves from the shoots at the tree base.

Leo Goudzwaard, at 2014-11-07 15:18:33, said:
you are right Kouta, but even from leaves from the treebase or epicormic shoots, I will be able to distinguish U. laevis (which is my favorite tree) from other U. species.

KoutaR, at 2014-11-07 15:29:01, said:
Ok. I believe that YOU can do it.

Karlheinz, at 2014-11-10 15:55:44, said:
Leo,

einen Scherz habe ich mir nicht erlaubt und Verwechslungen oder falsche Zuordnung der Blatt-Fotos schließe ich aus. Auch ohne die Fotos erinnere ich mich daran, dass ich unter dem Baum neben den normalen Blättern zahlreiche dieser Feldulmen-ähnlichen Blätter gefunden habe. Sie hatten Nervengabelungen auch in der oberen Blatthälfte. Ich kannte dieses Unterscheidungsmerkmal und habe vor Ort sehr bewußt darauf geachtet.

Gestern war ich wieder in Gartrop, ich hatte aber leider keinen Zutritt zum Schlosspark. Über die Sprechanlage zur Hotelrezeption erhielt ich immer nur den Hinweis auf "Privatbesitz", zu weiteren Auskünften war man nicht bereit.

Ich kenne eine weitere Ulme, die als Flatterulme bekannt ist und wo ich zu Beginn der Laubfallzeit vor etwa einer Woche auch solche Feldulmen-ähnlichen Blätter fand: European white elm (Ulmus laevis) '19851' . Auch dort war ich gestern und habe Fotos gemacht. Die obere Kronenhälfte ist inzwischen völlig blattleer und unten rieselten die Blätter. Zu meinem Erstaunen konnte ich im dichten Laub unter dem Baum keine Blätter mit Nerven-Gabelungen in der oberen Blatthälfte mehr entdecken, nur noch normale Flatterulmenblätter.

Beide Bäume weisen ein übereinstimmendes Merkmal auf:

Durch baumpflegerische Eingriffe in der Vergangenheit wurde die Krone eingekürzt und an den Schnittstellen haben sich Büschel von Neuaustrieben entwickelt, welche nun die Kronenperipherie prägen.

Ich schliesse daraus:

Diese für Flatterulmen untypischen Blätter bilden sich an den Neuaustrieben oben in der Krone. Zu Beginn der Laubfallzeit sind das die ersten Blätter, die der Baum abwirft und die man dann unten auflesen kann. Später, wenn die große Masse der Blätter fällt, sieht man nur noch normal geformte Blätter.

Nach meiner Einschätzung ist das eine Flatterulme, ich habe das entsprechend geändert.

Was haltet ihr von dieser Theorie?

Grüße

Karlheinz

here is my English translation:

Leo,

a joke I'm not allowed and confusion or incorrect assignment of the leaf photos I exclude. Even without the photos I remember that I found under the tree in addition to normal leaves many of these field elm-like leaves. They had nerve forks in the upper half. I knew this distinctive feature and on site I have paid attention very consciously to it.

Yesterday I was back in Gartrop, but I had no access to the park. Over the intercom to the hotel reception I always received the reference to "private property", for other information they were not willing.

I know another elm, which is known as white elm and where I also found such field elm-like leaves at the beginning of leaf fall time, about a week ago: <European white elm (Ulmus laevis) '19851' . Even there I was yesterday and took pictures. The upper half of the crown is now completely empty from leaves and also below the leaves trickled strongly. To my amazement, in the dense foliage on the ground under the tree I could no longer find leaves with nerve forks in the upper half, only normal elm leaves.

Both trees have a matching feature:

By arboriculture interventions in the past, the crowns of both trees was shortened and the stumps have developed tufts of new sproutings, which now shape the crown periphery.

I conclude:

This for Ulmus laevis untypical leaves are formed at the sproutings in top of the shortened crown. At the beginning of leaf fall time these are the first leaves that the tree throws off and you can pick up from the ground. Later, when the large mass of leaves fall, you will find only normal shaped leaves.

In my estimation, this is a white elm, I have changed accordingly.

What do you think about this theory?

regards

Karlheinz


Karlheinz, at 2015-04-11 08:12:31, said:


Recent photos of the flowers show: Ulmus laevis. I have learned from it: Also the leaves of European white elm can be very variable.

Hallo WiPe.

Het zou zo maar kunnen dat er de reuzenzwam er ook in zit maar die ben ik niet tegen gekomen. Ik zag duidelijk de anamorfen en de demarcatiezones van de kosthoutskoolzwam. Ook wil ik nog even zeggen dat 90% van de wortels nog in de grond zitten. Dat deze boom alleen maar in de stam is afgebroken wat niet helemaal te zien is op de foto.

Reuzenzwam tast de wortels en de stamvoet aan. Dat de boom afbreekt vlak boven de wortels sluit niet uit dat er reuzenzwam in de boom zit. Wat ik van de standplaats kan zien, geeft og meer het vermoeden dat er reuzenzwam in het spel is.

Hallo Jeroen,

Ik was vandaag op Mariënwaerdt. De boom Oriental plane (Platanus orientalis) '3498' is volgens het regiater van de Bomenstichting een digitata. Jij hebt foto's van het blad geplaatst. Dat lijkt mij inderdaad digitata. Wat denk jij?

Hoi Wim,

Ik zag deze boom ook als een 'Digitata' maar ik meen dat Leo Goudzwaard het daar niet mee eens was. Dus graag een reactie van Leo!

de boom van Marienwaerdt is een echte P. orientalis. De cultivar Digitata heeft dieper ingesneden bladeren met weinig zaagtanden, het blad lijkt op de vingers van een hand.

Hi Leo,

Verwarrend die bomenwereld. Martin Tijdgat heeft bij mij ooit de digitata geïntroduceerd. Ik besef dat het door Jeroen gefotografeerde blad niet erg digitata is. Maar...Ik vind het ook geen normale orientalis. (of ben ik erg abuis??) Ik heb met Nardo Kaandorp wel eens wat gesprekken gehad over wanneer er sprake is van een orientalis of een x hispanica. Verwarrende gesprekken. En nu deze boom. Ik weet niet wat en wie "Bosgroep Gelderland is", maar deze club meende destijds bij de Bomenstichting, kennelijk dat hier sprake is van digitata. Vandaar mijn prikkeling tot aandacht voor deze variant. Er is kennelijk geen spoortje twijfel bij je. Prima. Ik respecteer uiteraard jouw expertise.

Groet

WIm

Agree with Leo. Additionally, 'Digitata' was only first raised in about 1840, long after this tree was planted.

Hoi Wim en Leo,

Het grappige is dat dezelfde foto van deze boom in Leo's loofbomenboek op p. 239 staat als gewone orientalis met eronder een foto van een 'Digitata'. In de ANWB gids p 280-281 staat ook een duidelijke 'Digitata'.

Een duidelijke foto van een gewone orientalis staat op: arboretum . Een zeer oude boom, geen cultivar. Je ziet daar nog wat dieper ingesneden bladeren dan bij de boom van Marienwaard, maar net als daar met duidelijke zaagtanden, die op de 'Digitata' bladeren ontbreken, zoals Leo ook al aangeeft.

Groeten, Jeroen

Boom(groep) 1688320 staat in het BS-register goed op Platanus orientalis, maar uit hoeveel exemplaren bestaat deze groep???

Boom(groep) 1688319 staat op P.o. Digitata, maar dat kan ik niet checken, omdat er geen foto in het dossier staat. Ook dit zou een groep zijn, maar om hoeveel bomen gaat het???

Hoi Wim en Martin,

Beide platanen worden als behorend tot een groep benoemd in het landelijk register monumentale bomen (LRMB) van de Bomenstichting. De grootste oosterse plataan LRMB nr 1688320 (MT 3498) staat vlak naast een grote rode beuk LRMB nr 1688318 (MT 20625) en wordt daarom als deel van een groep vermeld, de andere oosterse plataan LRMB nr 1688319 (MT 3143) staat in de buurt van een gewone plataan, LRMB nr 1688323 (MT 12214) en enkele andere bomen, maar kan beter als solitair worden gezien. Nr 1688319 heb ik nooit gedetailleerd bekeken, maar is vermoedelijk net als 1688320 een gewone oosterse plataan, geen 'Digitata'.

De derde plataan LRMB nr 1688323 (MT 12214) is, zoals in het LRMB wordt vermeld, een 'gewone', hybride plataan, Platanus x hispanica. Hier op MT staat deze onterecht ook als oosterse plataan vermeld.

Groeten, Jeroen

Vraag me af of dit in nieuwe definitie "groep" bij LRMB niet moet worden gezien als verzameling solitaire bomen. Zeker als ze individueel al elk een eigen nummer hebben. Zou een hoop verwarring rond het aantal bomen in deze "groep" schelen. Pas jij dat aan, net als de correcte namen? Ik ken de bomen niet zelf.

Groet, Martin

Ja, we kunnen groep beter voorbehouden aan een groep bij elkaar staande exemplaren van één soort. Ik pas e.e.a. aan.

Nog even n.a.v. eerdere opmerkingen van Wim: er zijn tal van variëteiten van zowel de oosterse plataan als van de hybride gewone plataan. Ook diverse terugkruisingen. Je hebt daardoor een heel spectrum van platanen tussen de westerse plataan (Pl. occidentalis) met zeer ondiep ingesneden blad tot de extreem diep ingesneden Pl. oriëntalis 'Digitata'. Zo is de dikke plataan in Elden - Arnhem weer een grensgeval tussen oriëntalis en hispanica.

Een vergelijkbare variabiliteit zie je ook bij zomer- en wintereik en hun hybriden evenals van zomer- en winterlinde met de hybride Hollandse linde.

Groet, Jeroen

Texas Live Oaks (Quercus Fusiformis) are rare in Missouri but can be found in extreme SW Portion of the state along the Arkansas and Oklahoma borders. The trees are evergreen and will lose and replace leaves at the same time in spring. USDA zones 6b, 7a, 7b, 8a, 8b, 9a, 9b, 10a, 10b, 11a, 11b

The tree is very drought tolerant, can adapt to any soil condition and likes full sun.

In its marginal growing areas (6b and 7a) the tree may defoliate in cold winters and experience minor dieback on young trees in severe winters.

Similar to Quercus Virginiana, but much more cold hardy and willl in most instances not grow as massive.

A Rare version of Quercus Fusiformis is the Quartz Mountain variety a native of Oklahoma and the most cold tolerant of all Live Oaks.

Live Oak Trees do not like long durations of extreme below zero cold, however the Quartz Mountain variety has seen temperature extremes as low as -18 F.

Hallo Rem,

Leuk dat je een hoogtemeting van deze populier hebt gedaan. Wel interessant is dat 49 m bijna 5 meter hoger is dan het Europese record dat we tot nu toe met exacte methoden hebben vastgesteld voor Canadese populieren. Dat record, met 44,2 m met laser gemeten in Duitsland, is al weer ruim 2 meter hoger dan wat we in Nederland hebben gemeten, waar het record na honderden metingen met laser op 41,7 m is blijven steken.

Zie voor de kans op meetfouten de Engelstalige pagina op deze website over boomhoogtes meten: http://www.monumentaltrees.com/en/content/measuringheight/ . Naar onze ervaring evenals die van de beste bomenmeters in de Verenigde Staten zijn alleen metingen met laserapparatuur en het klimmen in de boom met een meetlint betrouwbaar gebleken.

Vriendelijke groeten,

Jeroen Philippona

Map icons
Visible for everyone · permalink · nl
Tim, at 2015-01-31 14:56:39, said:
Hi all,

as you know the colors of the map icons indicate the trees's girth.

I'm planning to add the possibility to choose what tree property is used for the color: not only girth, but also height, exact height, age, ...

Currently this is with a fixed legend (5-6m is orange, 6-9m is red, ...). This is still a relict from my old Belgium based giant sequoia site for which this legend made sense. For many other trees and other places this is not the case: all trees might be green or there might be too many dark red ones.

If I would add tree height, I could also take a fixed legend (e.g. 40-60m is orange, 60-80m red, ...). This might again be appropriate for some tree species and some areas, but not optimal for others.

That's why I could also make the legend dynamic: purple is for the thickest/highest tree within the area you're looking at. This way the colors would clearly indicate height/girth differences. The downside of course is that a "red icon" in one area might be a green one if the tree would be there. Colors wouldn't be fixed: the legend would be different for every area. Both options are the same work for me.

Of course ideally, you could choose between a fixed/dynamic one or define your own thresholds or something even more fancy, but in a first iteration I would like to go for one simple option only. I can always extend from there, but I would like to start with a simple design first.

What is preferred by most? Fixed or dynamic colors?

Thanks,

Tim

Hi Tim,

I prefer a dynamic legend above a fixed one. Better indeed would be to have the choice between a fixed/dynamic legend and better still to have the possibility to choose your own thresholds for every map.

For now the dynamic legend as well as the posibility to choose what tree property (girth, height, exact height, etc.) is used for the color are very nice extra's.

Kind regards and thank you!

Jeroen


Tim, at 2015-02-15 18:49:10, said:
Hi,

the new marker colors now on the site. You can choose between:

  • girth

  • height

  • exactly measured tree height

  • location elevation

The color are dynamic, as explained above. The legend is not yet visible. There will probably be some hiccups, as I didn't test it thoroughly (still got to do something else this evening).

Kind regards,

Tim


Jeroen Philippona, at 2015-03-01 23:49:48, said:
Hi Tim,

The new possibilities are very nice! Thanks a lot.

I still have one more wish: could you make two categories for girth? A class for single stem trees only as well a class for all trees including multi-trunk trees?

That would make the system better still. As you know Bob Leverett has been talking for years to American Forest-people to get this the rule for the American champion tree lists.

Height was 'estimated' by measuring up the tree 10ft with a tape to a recognisable point, then walking 50m back from the tree, using a stick to at arms length to duplicate the 10ft H, then using it to step up the tree.

I suspect this is a Wych elm as English elm firstly tends to have regularly-branched 'herring-bone' shoot patterns when young and secondly is so vulnerable to Elm Disease that a substantial lower trunk is unlikely to have survived, even in Ulster. Foliage would clinch it.

I have a hunch that these tall poplars will be one of the Black Italian hybrids (P. x canadensis). I should be able to identify the clone - particularly if you were able to photograph them over the next few months to show whether they carry male or female catkins and when/what colour the leaves flush. The shape of the tree can also be diagnostic.

It depends where you are! I live in Sussex and noteworthy trees all over Britain come under my remit (see www.treeregister.org) - a birch of 90' would be notable. Many other countries, especially the USA, have similar organisations to curate records of their exceptional trees and there may be a volunteer on the ground near you with the equipment to accurately height your trees.

Hallo Frankjan,

Indrukwekkende tulpenboom! Heb je deze bij toeval ontdekt? Het is verreweg de dikste tulpenboom waarvan ik heb gehoord, zelfs in de VS schijnen er niet zulke dikke exemplaren te zijn. Wel wordt de omtrek geflatteerd door de zeer breed uitlopende wortelaanzetten. Je hebt de omtrek gemeten op 1,50 m boven de bodem / het maaiveld. Heb je daarvoor het laagste / het hoogste of het gemiddelde niveau rond de stam gebruikt?

Dat maakt bij deze boom veel uit.

Wat betreft de hoogte: hoe lang is de jongen? Als de overzichtsfoto van forse afstand is genomen, is de boom wellicht 19 x zijn lengte.

Actually, György has his own homepage: http://dendromania.hu/index.php?lang=en

Jeroen Philippona, at 2015-02-10 21:58:50, said:
Hi Laszlo and Sisley,

Indeed very nice you have uploaded photos of Hungarian trees. Actually, Tim Bekaert and I asked György if we could place all his data at monumental trees. He allowed us to do this and sent the whole list without photos to Tim, who added it to the website.

This was a few years ago, after Tim, Leo Goudzwaard and I had proposed to the European Champian Tree Forum (ECTF) to make www.monumentaltrees.com the central database for the ECTF, because it has the possibility to make a common champion tree database of all European countries.

This proposal was not taken over by the ECTF organisation, although we put many Dutch and Belgian champion trees at MT. Also David Alderman and later Owen Johnson decided to put the top trees from the British Tree Register at MT. Aubrey Fennell added many champion trees from Ireland to MT, as did other people for Germany, Poland, the Czech Republic, Latvia and other countries.

So this goal of having a common database for trees of all of Europe (and if possible other parts of the world) is still getting nearer.

A tree database with reliable measurements as well as good photos always was an important aim for MT. Because of this we also gave instructions about tree measurement, beside girth measurement especially of height measurement.

But of course the photos are also very important, so thanks again!

Kind regards,

Jeoren Philippona

Er staat wel degelijk een Sequoiadendron giganteum voor het kasteel in Perk.

Deze zou één van de overblijvenden zijn van een groep van drie. De boom heeft geen hoogte in verhouding met zijn ouderdom. Vermoedelijk is de top ooit door een storm afgebroken.

Hoi Leo,

hartstikke bedankt voor je toevoeging. Zoals je zag twijfelde ik ook al. Toevallig vandaag nog een inzet van een kegel toegevoegd aan foto 3. Het heeft wel de achteroverleunende uitstekels die ik ook bij de nootkacypres zie. Waar zit precies het verschil precies in?

Ik verander in ieder geval de tekst bij de boom.

Hello Alberto, what a great picture!

About the age, more than 2000 years is indeed too much. This was caused by a recent problem that caused the "year of planting/germination" to be "year 0", causing an age of 2015 years. I will look into it as soon as I have time.

Kind regards,

Tim

Muchas gracias Monzon,

No se que error hay en el sistema, dice que los árboles fueron plantados en el año 0000, da igual la edad que le pongas.Tambien ha pasado con un roble común reportado recientemente en Dinamarca y con un pino salgareño reportado por mí hace un par de días. Intentaré marcar la edad correcta de nuevo.

Efectivamente es el mismo árbol del blog y de la página de turismo de Avila y debe tener alrededor de 300 años.

Un saludo.

Hi tim. thank you for your comment.

I try to put that was planted in 1700 but always goes the year 0000 there is an error in the system because it has gone well lately with other trees.

Hi Alberto, the problem is solved. I have set the planting/germination year to 1700 +- 80 years. Feel free to change it if it is not correct.

Elevation profiles
Visible for everyone · permalink · nl
Tim, at 2015-01-30 23:00:53, said:
Hi,

some new functionality: it is now possible to see elevation profiles for any species. An elevation profile shows how many trees are registered for each elevation or altitude interval.

Some examples:

http://www.monumentaltrees.com/en/elevation/europeanlarch/

http://www.monumentaltrees.com/en/elevation/giantsequoia/

It also works for varieties/subspecies/cultivars/... There is a link to these pages on each species page.

It has also been possible to see a location's elevation or altitude on the image pages as you might have noticed.

This info might not be useful for trees in flat countries like e.g. the Netherlands but it might be interesting to see how well some species do elsewhere and at what altitudes.

Kind regards,

Tim

Or, our plant is wrong labeled, or the plant is too much shaded and shows very bad colour.

This is probably the yew that was reported as 364cm girth for Loudon's Arboretum et Fruticetum Britannicum in 1835-7. 'Rediscovring' a tree after a 180 years' gap doesn't happen every day - well done!

This is very interesting, I will upload a picture of the tree if this would help. Would you have any idea whereabouts in this book that it mentions this yew tree? I have been looking through the book online for the past hour and a half and I couldn't find anything mentioning Gosford... Although I could be looking at the wrong volume perhaps?

TheTreeRegisterOwenJohnson, at 2015-01-24 19:42:38, said:
There are four volumes of text in Arboretum et Fruticetum Britannicum (and four of illustrations). A few years ago when I added the trees in them to the Tree Register, all were available online through Google Books, but last time I looked I was only able to find later editions of one or two of the volumes. I think the species are arranged family by family but I can't remember which volume Taxus is in. Under Taxus baccata there should be a long list of specimens measured by Loudon's corespondents, arranged in approximate geographical order. Having said that, the records for Taxus had already been imput onto the Tree Register by Alan Mitchell many years ago and I didn't check through them all, so it's just possible that an error has crept in somewhere. Let's hope not, as the match seems such a good one!

I found the long list of recorded trees, there is a mention of Gosford but it is Gosford House in Edinburgh, however, I don't think the measurements for this tree in Edinburgh match the 364cm that you mentioned.


TheTreeRegisterOwenJohnson, at 2015-01-26 18:54:52, said:
It must have been the Scottish Gosford. We had problems when we were transferring Alan's card-index register onto computer when different sites shared the same name. There may in this case have been a mix-up between girth and diameter as well. A pity as it would have been good to find a previous record for your big yew.

Unlike the other one this is Betula pubescens, Downy Birch (the commoner native birch species except on sandy soil). You can tell by the bark which remains fairly evenly coloured and thin at the base - rugged black base for B. pendula.

Beste Smal65,

Bedankt voor het ontrafelen van de identiteit van deze boom. Ik had hem al een paar keer gezien, maar geen idee wat het was. De eerste van zijn soort op MT. Kende je deze soort?

smal65, at 2015-01-22 19:28:28, said:
We kwamen deze soort tegen tijdens een excursie van de NDV (Nederlandse dendrologische vereniging). Degene die de excursie leidde wist deze boom te vinden. In het arboretum Trompenburg in Rotterdam staat de soort ook, alleen veel kleiner.
Nardo Kaandorp, at 2015-01-22 19:47:43, said:
Kijk dat zijn nog eens leerzame excursies. Had ik ook bij willen zijn. Hoe oud zou de boom zijn? Ik kwam nog een oude meting van mij tegen van een "raar sparretje" dd 9-12-2010. De omtrek was toen 2,49m bij een hoogte van 15,6m

As I was reading the section on sequoia trees outside their natural range, I noticed that there was no information about sequoia trees in Africa. I can confirm that they exist: I was recently in South Africa where I visited the Stellenbosch University Botanical Garden in the city of Stellenbosch, where they have a giant sequoia growing side-by-side with a california redwood. Unfortunately, I did not take any pictures, but the trees are mentioned on the garden's wikipedia entry:

Can you check the exact coordinate on the map? (It can be changed by clicking on the marker)

Probably I placed the icon close to the tree anyway as it is a very small botanical garden, but I couldn't see the tree on Streetview or on the satellite imagery.

Kind regards,

Hi Tim,

Thanks for adding the tree! I am glad to have contributed in this small way.

The location looks approximately right. I don't remember enough of the garden's layout

to pinpoint it further, but this will certainly be good enough because, as you said,

the garden is quite small, and it is hard to overlook a giant sequoia :-) As I recall,

there is a coast redwood right next to it, which is somewhat amusing.

I wonder if there are more sequoia's elsewhere in South AFrica. I didn't see any

in the (very large and beautiful) Kirstenbosch Gardens, but that is to be expected

because that place is focused on indigenous trees and plants.

best regards,

-Frank

Hallo Henk en Wim,

Leuk dat Henk er is opgegroeid. Mijn vader woonde vanaf eind jaren dertig in de Bloemveldlaan in het Ramplaankwartier vlakbij Elswout, mijn opa en oma woonden er nog tot 1970. Vanaf mijn eerste stapjes ben ik zeer veel in Elswout geweest; indertijd moest je er een wandelkaart voor hebben. Aanvankelijk vond ik de roodbonte stamboekkoeien en de waterpartijen het mooiste, later gingen de bomen me ook opvallen. Wellicht kwam ik Henk er wel eens tegen; ik ben in 1955 geboren.

Bijzonder landgoed, helaas zijn inderdaad nogal wat oudere bomen gesneuveld.

Groeten, Jeroen

De beuken a/d oprijlaan heb ik zien planten door mijn vader. Verder staan er enkele exemplaren die door ons gepoot zijn. De plek waar de wonderboom heeft gestaan is mij door mijn vader aangewezen, toen het beeld Halali verplaats werd, heb ik geholpen het in de menie te zetten (vond ik interessant) de replica (paneel) van het huisje van Kabuur heb ik in 1964 zien schilderen.... enz enz... ach mooooie tijden van weleer....

I was wondering, though, how did you find these trees in Santa Fe? (It looks like the info for most of them was added by you.) Did you visit there? Do you know if there are any other sequoias in New Mexico? And how would you suggest I find them?

Thanks so much,

Pyramidal and broad; branches spreading; branchlets spreading, decurving; sprays and leaves green spotted with creamy white or bright yellow. (Den Ouden / Boom;Manual of cultivated Conifers; 1965,Martinus Nijhof, The Hague)

I have seen one before, but this creamy white or bright yellow spots does not seem to be as bright as you might expect by this discription. I will try to add an image on monumental trees later this week.

WW,

WiPe did it already. Thanks for that WiPe! Hope this will help. I also tried to find a good picture, but it is hard to find with this very old cultivar. Maybe WiPe can help you with his picture. Greetings, Martin

As an aside, whatever the cultivar, the species is Lawson's Cypress; it doesn't need to stay in the "Tree of undetermined species" section ;-)

Ok thanks, will change it to Lawson Cypress later today.

For more pictures of this tree, I took some which I posted here:

You can use the up/down arrows. There are several pictures of the tree, but since I'm a mapper, I also took many other pictures so the pictures of the tree are distributed over the sequence.

I have 1 more picture (of its name tag). I can't understand why I can't upload 3 pictures in one go, or why there is no button on this page to add another picture for this same tree on this page. I won't go throught the whole process again.

The picture can be found here, along with more pictures taken in the arboretum.

It took me more than an hour to add 1 tree for which I still had to add the species.

Also, I can't seem to add the variety using the UI. It is var. maximowiozii.
Conifers, at 2015-01-20 00:35:35, said:
The variety maximowiczii is no longer considered distinct from the type, it is just part of the normal variation in the species.

I see. I'm not much of a dendrologist. My interest is in adding trees to Openstreetmap. And this one looked quite peculiar, so I tried adding it here.

That tree is in an arboretum, therefore it is tagged, which makes it easier/possible for me to 'determine' what species it is.

If the information on the tag is wrong or deprecated by the time I go over to take a picture, I'm lost, of course.

Should something be changed about this entry? Is there a way to remove var. (which remains empty now) from it?

It is quite a rather small tree to put on monumental trees. There are more interesting plants of this specimen to be found in Belgium

Maybe one of these days I'll manage to head over to the arboretum in Tervuren, the other ones are out of my reach. I wanted to see what this site is about and how it works, so I looked at some pictures I made, while mapping for Openstreetmap. This one just happened to draw my attention.

Today I found another tree, which actually is monumental, but it would surprise me if somebody else didn't already add it.

I'll go add a link to the pictures I posted on Mapillary of it.

Giant Sequoia in Santa Fe

Hi! I noticed you posted some information about a giant sequoia in Santa Fe (Near the end of San Antonio, on the right. About 3 blocks S). I recently drove by it, and it's a beautiful tree! How did you find it? And how did you figure out when it was planted?

Thanks so much,

Patrick

I met the guy that planted the tree. Talk with Micheal Melendrez at http://treesthatplease.org/ you won't regret it. A great soul.

siriatma, at 2015-01-19 16:01:58, said:
There are three giant sequoias in that neighborhood. Did you find them all? Best way to find giant sequoias is to go to some high ground and look down. They are the tallest trees around. Don't miss the Sequoiadendron 'pendulosa' in front of payne's nursery on St Micheal's. If you head back to town from the San Antonio tree and take the first small dead end right turn off assacia de madre, you will find another one. I have over 40 sequoia's on my property in Espanola.

You might want to see all the sequoias he (micheal) planted around the capital building (the round one).

Wow, thanks for the amazing reply. I'll definitely get in contact with Michael. So I saw the tree at the end of San Antonio (Near the end of San Antonio, on the right. About 3 blocks S) and I saw the one off Acequia Madre (Acequia Madre). Is there another one I'm I missed?

Your property sounds amazing. How old are the trees on your property?

Thanks so much,

Patrick

I started planting sequoias in 1996

Bonjour Milimims,

Je pense ce beau chêne est un chêne rouvre, Quercus petraea ou Quercus pubescens, et pas un chêne vert, Quercus ilex.

Hello Milimims,

I think this is a Sessile Oak, Quercus petraea or perhaps Q. pubescens and not a Holm Oak, Quercus ilex. This can be seen from the lobed leaves.

Best regards,

Jeroen Philippona


Leo Goudzwaard, at 2015-01-19 21:22:01, said:
I do agree with Jeroen, either Q. petraea or Q. pubescens, Leo

Ik kom vaak bij deze boom voorbij tijdens mijn middagloopjesin Gent (langs de Schelde en het Gentbrugse meersen). Leuk deze ook hier op de website te zien verschijnen.

Groeten,

Fijn om te horen dat er nog mensen van deze boom genieten. Ik zou graag wat van die Robinias zien verdwijnen om hem wat meer licht te geven zodat de onderste takken niet helemaal sterven.

In de wijk Meersemhof staan trouwens nog twee kanjers als restant van het kasteeldomein: een (jammer genoeg gekandelaarde) moerascipres waarvan enkel de kruin zichtbaar is vanop de straat en een knoert van een beuk die goed te bewonderen valt van op de wegel die door de wijk loopt.

als je tijd hebt, kun je die dan fotograferen en toevoegen?
