Where does one measure the girth on a tree like this? I'd guess, not below 4 or 5 metres height?
Jeroen Philippona, en 2014-12-21 22:00:42, ha dicho:
Bart Bouricius wrote the buttresses are up to 45 feet / 13.6 m high along the trunk, so only there the girth without buttresses can be measured. He tried it but they could not manage this. He will try it at a next visit to the tree. As I wrote he estimated the girth without buttresses at breast height at something between 6.7 and 9.8 m.

I know quite a few sent me mails, and I received these but was not able to answer yet.

Today I had some time to work on the site and chose to try to do something about the 'max_user_connections' problem that occurs when Chinese spammers hammer the site.

What I did:

- block registration attempts from domain and removed over 500 fake users

- made the recent changes list faster, overall improving the site's performance (the downside of this currently the orange color with unseen edits is temporarily not there, restoring that is the next priority).

- allowed pasting links with German characters (ä, ö, ü, ß) in

Kind regards,

Hi Tim,

Very good, if these spammers are mostly from China it is better to block all entrances from that country as till now (as far as I know) there have not been serious users from China.

Kind regards, Jeroen

I only recently took account of your contributions. I like the trees you post and admire your pictures. I welcome you very much.


Wim Brinkerink, en 2014-12-19 21:17:31, ha dicho:
Adjusting my first mail. I like people who are interested in the images, and their qualities and overall-view of the tree. So I have an individualistic approach to trees. Some of us are more interested in numbers and records. I welcome everyone who prefers the image. And especially if they can make a difference. You will do so, I'm sure of that.

I am curious about your following contributions.

Wim Brinkerink, en 2014-12-19 20:54:44, modificado en 2014-12-19 21:00:48, ha dicho:
Fantastic tree, very nice pictures.

Conifers, en 2014-12-19 14:19:13, ha dicho:
Nice tree! It's a Coast Redwood Sequoia sempervirens, not a Giant Sequoia Sequoiadendron giganteum (so of even more value, as less commonly planted).

Need advice saving two sequoia
Visible para todo el mundo · permalink · en
Brian, en 2014-12-16 03:35:28, ha dicho:
I have two sequoia trees approximately 20m tall x 5m girth in scenic North Bend Washington, USA. One recently lost a limb, which unfortunately almost destroyed my neighbor's garage. My neighbor has engaged a lawyer to force me to cut these beautiful trees down. I would like to find an arborist expert on sequoia. I want to do all I can to save these trees from destruction. Is there an arborist in western Washington State that would be best for this assignment? Thanks


RedRob, en 2014-12-17 16:22:08, ha dicho:
Hello Brian, welcome. Not Washington state but not a million miles away and an arborist with a definite interest in redwoods to say the least is this guy:

I would send Mario a message with your query and ask him his advice, if you send him detailed photos I imagine that he may be able to help even from a distance.

Brian, en 2014-12-17 16:52:15, ha dicho:
RedRob, thank you for your help. I will follow your excellent advice.

RedRob, en 2014-12-17 16:57:00, ha dicho:
You are very welcome Brian, hope that Mario can help save your trees. Perhaps you could register them on here to help with your cause against the lawyers?

The weather good in your area at the moment? I am in Yorkshire, England but have seen and have been following the coverage of the storm in California with the houses buried in mud from mudslides.

Brian, en 2014-12-18 03:07:06, ha dicho:
RedRob, thanks again for the information. I was also able to find an arborist in a local town, Fall City, that may know about sequoia. It was a little to dreary to take premium pictures today. It should be nice tomorrow, before five days of forecasted rain.

I was not certain I should register my trees; they are not that big by sequoia standards. I have a Bigleaf maple (girth about 8 - 9 m) as well as cedars and firs that are larger. I'll take accurate measurements with the pictures tomorrow.

The weather here is very nice. We are not getting pounded by the storms that are rolling through California.

Conifers, en 2014-12-19 14:20:33, ha dicho:
Just seen the photo - nice tree! It's a Coast Redwood Sequoia sempervirens, not a Giant Sequoia Sequoiadendron giganteum (so of even more value, as less commonly planted).

Quercus Hispanica and Q x Hispanica Lucombeana
Visible para todo el mundo · permalink · en
wwhiteside97, en 2014-12-18 16:42:57, ha dicho:
Could someone tell me, is it Q x Hispanica that keeps it's leaves all year? And 'Lucombeana' that loses most but not all of its leaves? I recently uploaded a 5.18m oak which I think is Q x Hispanica as it still had all its leaves(this was in mid November). Would I be correct in saying this?

Conifers, en 2014-12-18 17:42:32, ha dicho:
Quercus × hispanica is the name which covers all hybrids between Turkey Oak and Cork Oak; so it is very variable, and of course includes 'Lucombeana' as a sub-set.

TheTreeRegisterOwenJohnson, en 2014-12-18 17:52:54, ha dicho:
The commonest clones of Q. x hispanica in Britain and Ireland are 'William Lucombe', which should have about 80% of its leaves left in December and 20% by March, and an unnamed corky-barked clone grafted at the base on Turkey Oak, which is almost completely evergreen. Rarer clones include 'Fulhamensis' which loses most of its leaves after Christmas and a few unnamed deciduous clones. 'William Lucombe' is the only clone that regularly reaches 5m girth with a good single bole.

wwhiteside97, en 2014-12-18 18:18:57, ha dicho:
Thanks, this makes things clearer, I shall upload an image of the tree as it is at the minute. The trunk was hidden away for many years by Rhodo Ponticum until these were cleared about 5 years ago and until this time you couldn't see the size of the trunk.

wwhiteside97, en 2014-12-18 19:26:03, ha dicho:
Just as a matter of interest, what size of leaf has 'William Lucombe'? There are 2 other Lucombe oaks in the forest with quite a big leaf but the leaves on this tree are smaller than these ones.

TheTreeRegisterOwenJohnson, en 2014-12-18 21:15:45, ha dicho:
'William Lucombe's' leaves are Turkey-Oak sized but more regularly lobed. The most vigorous examples might have slightly bigger leaves - it's probably the biggest-leaved clone (or group of clones perhaps by now) of Q. x hispanica. Q. castaneifolia is always a possibility for a look-alike with significantly longer leaves: this is deciduous but can hold only its dead leaves through winter.

Conifers, en 2014-12-18 21:35:37, ha dicho:
Even Quercus cerris is only just starting to shed leaves in the last few days around here

wwhiteside97, en 2014-12-18 22:23:07, ha dicho:
Probably is one of the larger leaved clones then, I will upload a photo of the leaves of this particular tree and of the other Lucombe oak which I have added to this site.


wwhiteside97, en 2014-12-19 13:59:00, ha dicho:
I have uploaded pictures of the two trees, both are not the same examples but are the same species of tree. The 5.18 tree is exactly the same species as the one I have uploaded with nearly all of its leaves still on. The other Lucombe Oak? I have uploaded has nearly all of its leaves gone, I have also uploaded images of the leaves of both trees.

Hello Owen, what is the champion for height for Ceanothus in Britain, can only find two on the register of 5 and 6 metres, Lambeth 2001 and Canterbury Cathedral respectively when I use Champions of B&I and county search? I have come across one which is around 5 metres, not sure which type it is?

69 Moorside, Boston Spa

No Ceanothus registered on here at all. Also when visiting this are workwise the other day came across a 3 metre Mahonia, not sure which type?

TheTreeRegisterOwenJohnson, en 2014-12-18 17:54:54, ha dicho:
Those are the only two Ceanothus I've measured! Normally they're bushes - the same with Mahonia.

Stephen, any news about your trees, have you managed to get the photos off your phone? Still looking forward to hearing about and seeing more of or some of your trees from your visit to Wales? Hope that it isn't a wait in vain?

Stephen Verge, en 2014-12-18 08:37:43, ha dicho:
Hi Rob

Very frustrating, given a phone which has so far been impossible to upload to my computer, will try over the holidays and failing that will have to scan prints! Been busy, but now have a month off work to hopefully upload some pictures and a couple of reports.

To change the subject, I have reclaimed some old growth Western Red Cedar timber from a children's climbing frame and hopefully to make a great garden bench.

Last night with a magnifying glass I counted 300 years of growth in a piece of timber 13cm x 8cm!!!!!!!!!!!!

Never seen such slow growth!!! Sadly from a tree which could be a 1000 years old, likely from B.C Coast or Vancouver Island. Worth a fortune and I could not accept that someone wanted to cut it up for firewood!!



Rotating pictures
Visible para todo el mundo · permalink · nl
Wim Brinkerink, en 2014-12-17 12:17:54, ha dicho:
A few weeks ago I mentioned a newly met problem with uploading pictures. My new system operates under Windows 8. The Windows explorer automatically rotates pictures 90% if they are taken vertical. For everyone who will meet this problem in due time, there isn't an easy solution. This problem is caused by Microsoft and Microsoft takes no responsibility, so I learned on a microsoft-community blog. I have asked the question to my computer manufacturer and to the FAQ man of a well-known Computer-magazine. The manufacturer said that it is a problem of the Microsoft software and they cannot help. The FAQ man of the computer magazine says, I have to process the picture with a qualitatively good rotating-program.

In the meantime I solve this problem by uploading the pictures on my second system (windows 7) and using my network to upload them to my main computer. So be prepared all, once you switch to Windows 8, you will meet the same problem.

Het gaat erg goed met deze boom. De omvang is flink toegenomen sinds 2003. Meer dan 6 meter? Op het landgoed staat ook een flinke moerascypres.

Hallo Leute

Big Joe ist akut vom Umschneiden bedroht! Ich arbeite derzeit an einer Rettungsaktion um ihn solange stehen zu lassen, bis er von selber umfällt!

wwhiteside97, en 2014-12-14 16:54:39, ha dicho:
I know it is a lawson cypress cultivar, I think maybe 'Columnaris'?
TheTreeRegisterOwenJohnson, en 2014-12-15 18:41:27, ha dicho:
Yes, I think 'Columnaris'. The abrupt degeneration in the habit from 3m up is characteristic of this clone.
wwhiteside97, en 2014-12-15 19:45:09, ha dicho:
Thanks, yes that's what made me think it was Columnaris.

wwhiteside97, en 2014-12-14 16:59:41, ha dicho:
Thought this was an unusual silver birch because of the weeping... Any particular type or just one that is very weeping?
Alberto Cuervo Flores, en 2014-12-14 20:45:39, ha dicho:
Maybe is Betula pendula variety "tristis".
wwhiteside97, en 2014-12-14 20:53:10, ha dicho:
I think it might be as it has long flimsy twigs, thanks!
TheTreeRegisterOwenJohnson, en 2014-12-15 18:40:15, ha dicho:
I would agree. I've found it very difficult to be confident with this clone as it just represents an extreme of the variable natural habit and never seems to have been raised as grafts, but this one looks as good a candidate as any I've seen.
