Good find

I love your posts. Good find here. I have visited a couyple sights that you have posted and I am always pleasantly surprised at ho much larger the trees appear in person. Good job!

Barbed wire

I think I recall a story about a military base, somewhere like Arkansas, fortifying the perimeter with a Poncirus hedge. I hunted for the Bishops Close once or twice, didn't quite figure it out. What the heck, I lived near Crystal Springs.

Hey Ty...Dave...

Hey Ty..Dave..
Thanks for the posts...Ty...the tree is pretty cool...it was cloudy on Saturday so the pictures didnt come out as good as I wanted them to come out, but Im going to do a write up on this tree to find out the exact "specs" of the tree, how old, when planted, any specific care, etc. David the arborist that I was talking about in a previous post though the tree was something like 30 or 40 years old..and he trimmed it up a bit to make it nicer looking,
I told David that the "deadwood" needed to come out of the tree. He said he would do that per my recommondation. He said he would get back to me with more information on the Poncirus.
I also had a lengthy conversation with the dude at Northup Station as well. I spoke to him and he asked me to email him question about the Washingtonia filifera's at the hotel. This is gonna blow you guys away, but since 2001, they are on their "3rd" planting of those palms there, the other two plantings of the mexican fan palm there died! So...He gave me information to the ...what he called the "landscape architect" of which I dont think he knows much about cold hardy tropicals in any sense...and was thinking about emailing the landscape architect and explaining a few things to him about "plants"...or ..cold hardy tropicals...I also mentioned to him in the email that i could do some consulting work for Northrup Station and give information and ideas on other plants as well as more "cold hardy palms" that could be planted per se. Im going to do a write up on the Northup Station palms, as I have alot of information on them...from the owner...
Anyway stay tuned...my next palm in portland will be the one planted..and "documented" via the Oregonian ..on the Trachycarpus fortunei planted in 1925....of which I have pictures of.
I am also going to be doing a write up and take pictures of a 100 + loquat tree located in Portland as well..

Excellent work, John

Nice job, John. I would love to go see this tree. I have some tiny citrus in my yard, which I hope will some day grow up and look like that.

Thanks for posting the link about the tall, old, trachies in Aloha on 194th and Hennig. They are great.

I look forward to seeing about the 100 year old loquat.

Talk to you soon,
