Forestry ID

Postby Jim_R » August 29th, 2011, 4:34 pm

Similar to the other ID games, post an answer to the previous question. If the poster confirms answer, post the next question.
-The path of the Administrator is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

-Nothing\'s gonna get deleted. We\'re gonna be like three little Fonzies here. And what\'s Fonzie like? Come on, what\'s Fonzie like?
-Cool?
-Correctamundo. And that\'s what we\'re gonna be. We\'re gonna be cool. Now, I\'m gonna count to three, and when I count three, you let go of your mouse, and back away from the keyboard. But when you do it, you do it cool. Ready? One... two... three.

@kjhsscioly, I thought you made the thread. Anyways, let's start off with an easy one:

1. What tree is known for being the tallest in the world and where is it found?

Haha, there is more than one sequoia (it is a genus). Which one? Also, I think it would be best to use hide tags for answering the questions.

No, I think it's Sequoia semiperverens, coast redwood.

Jurupa oak, 13,000 years

or the norway spruce, which is more well known, at 9000 years

I'm not sure if I phrased this corrrectly, but the oldest individual tree ever found, not a clonal colony.
And the oldest colony is Quaking Aspen, which is, believe it or not, more than 80,000 years old.

Bump. Don't want this to be dead for too long. Identify which tree this cone came from:

Sorry, incorrect. The Eastern Hemlock cones have more rounded edges and the scales aren't as straight.

Sorry, incorrect. The scales are too vertical (if you know what I mean) to be a hemlock.
