These are Quercus robur acorns ;-)

jaknouse, op 2014-10-20 00:29:22, zei:
Pinus strobus is universally called "white pine" throughout its natural range. I have never in my life heard it called Weymouth pine.

Conifers, op 2014-10-20 08:04:22, zei:
More accurately, Eastern White Pine, so as to distinguish it from e.g. Pinus monticola (Western White Pine).

TheTreeRegisterOwenJohnson, op 2014-10-21 18:16:42, zei:
This is an interesting point, as we have English (country) names for trees on this site in the English language version rather than American ones, which would be more logical for trees with an American distribution. In this case 'Weymouth' commemorates Captain George Weymouth who first brought the tree to England in the early 17th century but has no relevance to American users of this site. I shan't offer to change the names to the American ones myself as I don't know all of them!

Conifers, op 2014-10-21 21:38:19, zei:
I'd favour using native names (i.e., use Eastern White Pine for Pinus strobus), provided they are botanically accurate (thus use e.g. Lawson's Cypress for Chamaecyparis lawsoniana, and not call it a cedar Cedrus as many in the USA regrettably misidentify it).

jaknouse, op 2014-10-22 17:42:34, zei:
That sounds reasonable.

Hello again Demercladen,

I don't know if you're aware of the site www.ancient-tree-hunt.org.uk, which is designed to allow people to record details of veteran trees (ie trees which are important for their associated wildlife and intrinsic age) around the UK. I've just transferred your pollard sallow to this site (http://www.ancient-tree-hunt.org.uk/recording/tree?tree=96d3cccd-659a-41fe-b3fe-1b6aca7f5852), as it's clearly ancient from your pictures and one of the most significant in Wales. (You'll see the record appearing under my user-name on that site. The details of where I transferred the record from are in the notes.) I hope I've got the location right. If you want to upload your photos (or other tree records) to the Ancient Tree Hunt site, this is quite easy, though the site doesn't have much professional support these days. It's working OK today anyway!

Russia no Ukraine
Conifers, op 2014-10-21 18:09:40, zei:
Ukraine still, though currently under illegal Russian occupation.
MColombari1, op 2014-10-21 22:01:20, zei:
illegal is the current Ukrainian government

Curious: the first tree with a passport! Stop this please. A discussion for an other website.

demercleden, op 2014-10-18 15:18:14, zei:
Is there another like this one? how old would she be? (at 3.6m girth, .. of the birch family)
Conifers, op 2014-10-18 15:46:39, zei:
Quite old, but impossible to give a good estimate as it is looks like an old pollard.

PS Species now classified as Frangula alnus

PPS Frangula is hermaphrodite, so 'it', not 'she' ;-)

demercleden, op 2014-10-18 16:09:49, zei:
Yes knew it was hermaphrodite, so preferred a 'she' or 'he' or 'he/she' as mood suggested. it is not a a rock!
TheTreeRegisterOwenJohnson, op 2014-10-21 18:06:36, zei:
I think this tree is Salix caprea (possibly the hybrid Salix x reichartii), rather than Alder Buckthorn. The leaves should be wrinkly above and very finely grey-woolly underneath - very smooth and quite shiny green in Frangula alnus. I'd love to see an Alder Buckthorn with a single trunk more than 30cm thick, but I doubt I ever will! 3.6m girth is also near the maximum size for Salix caprea, though it tends to grow bigger in relatively harsh upland climates like this.
TheTreeRegisterOwenJohnson, op 2014-10-21 18:11:00, zei:
By the way (Tim), two of the photos of this one appear on their side on the tree's webpage, but come the right way up when you click to view them. Any ideas why?
demercleden, op 2014-10-21 18:54:51, zei:
Thank you again (I apologise for my inexperience) but have to start somewhere .. Yes I can see that you are right as I have checked the leaf against picture in Wikipoedia .. Can I change the classification?
Conifers, op 2014-10-21 21:39:59, gewijzigd op 2014-10-21 21:41:00, zei:
I'll change it if you like! . . . . Done!

One of a number of remarkable silver biches on Gray Hill
TheTreeRegisterOwenJohnson, op 2014-10-21 18:12:56, zei:
Probably Betula pubescens, rather than B. pendula - the commoner of the two native 'Silver Birches' in the UK. Leaves of B. pendula are more triangular, the finer branches hang down, and the bark is usually crisply divided into smooth pure white bits and very rugged black bits (not visible in this case because of the moss).
demercleden, op 2014-10-21 18:43:39, zei:
Thank you, I hadn't worked out the differences. There are a lot of ancient birches and other tree species on Gray hill ... Mixed in with as many Neolithic and Bronze Age stone workings, enclosures, circles banks, cairns and walls

demercleden, op 2014-10-20 12:19:35, zei:
because this tree is near the crown of a high hill it has divided low down, so taking a 1.5m girth measurement would appear to not have much meaning? (so have not yet)
Sisley, op 2014-10-21 16:18:57, zei:
In this situation, we can take the girth of the largest trunk and this measure can be valid if we don't registre in the 'multi-trunks part'
demercleden, op 2014-10-21 16:27:46, zei:
Thanks, I can do that. Probably won't be near any records but it is a splendid and notable tree nevertheless. I shall take a measurement of the largest trunk,(and for reference a measurement of the trunk below where the three join, and the height of this above the ground).

Hi All

Thought you might have seen this, but if not look below.

http://vancouverislandbigtrees.blogspot.co.uk/2014_09_01_archive.html

This appalling Forestry practice continues! This would not happen in the UK!

The tree is sadly doomed and will blow over in the next Pacific gale.

Trees such as these need the whole valley side to protect them.

Very sad!

Thanks Kouta

Great pictures/video.

How old 4-500 years?

This is not forestry and I thought the Amazon was bad!

Is there any hope for the Human Race!!

Martin Tijdgat, op 2014-05-06 18:23:53, zei:
Hai Karin,

Is dit een 'gewone' gele treurwilg Salix x sepulcralis 'Chrysocoma'? Die de afgelopen weken hel-gele twijgen had. Of is het de veel zeldzamer groene treurwilg Salix babylonica, die altijd groene twijgen heeft?

karin5f, op 2014-05-07 14:36:01, zei:
Hallo Martin,

Ik heb hem pas ontdekt op een nieuwe wandelroute, dus kan helaas noch bevestigen noch ontkennen. Ik gok dat het de gewone treurwilg is. Maar dat is nergens op gebaseerd....Ik kan alleen de volgende lente afwachten. Of kan ik het nog ergens anders aan zien? En ook veel dank voor je boeken tip.

Groet,

Karin

Nardo Kaandorp, op 2014-06-17 19:04:25, zei:
Hallo Karin,

Deze treurwilg stond er op MT (zonder foto) met een omtrek van 4,12m. Ik herkende hem gelijk vanwege de uitgebroken top. Als je op de kaart kijkt zie je het ook. Kun jij deze boom verwijderen en je foto toevoegen aan de boom die er al op stond. Thanks!

Overigens de dikke populier aan de overkant is toch echt een populier hoor en geen berk. De stam en bladeren laten geen twijfel.

Mooie wilg die je hebt ontdekt verderop.

Groet,

Nardo

karin5f, op 2014-10-17 22:54:56, zei:
Hallo Narno, jammer genoeg weet ik niet waar de treurwilg mt staat die je bedoelde. Ook de reden waardoor ik dit zo lang uitstel...Ik heb net gezocht...maar zonder resultaat. Wil graag alles in orde maken. Kun je me helpen?vast bedankt karin

excuus dat het zo lang duurde.

Nardo Kaandorp, op 2014-10-20 18:52:35, zei:
Hoi Karin,

Het was al geregeld hoor. Ik heb de treurwilg die ik erop had gezet verwijderd. Dat was eigenlijk een stuk handiger. Hij staat er nu dus maar 1 keer op.

Gr, Nardo

jaknouse, op 2014-10-20 00:12:02, zei:
Mountain silverbells. This is often still called Halesia carolina (which is properly now called H. tetraptera), but it is a distinctly different species. H. tetraptera is a shrub, while this is a medium-size tree.


JJVR, op 2014-10-19 13:48:30, zei:
Het betreft de voorste/middelste boom.

Een foto van de boom in het geheel moet ik nog een keer maken vanaf de andere kant van de beek.
