Don't forget your County Agricultural Agent. They have an arboretum here in Chattanooga next to his office of native tree species. (n/t)

Civil War Tree?
May 07, 2007 01:21AM
I have found a few items near this tree. It looks like it has been here a long long time. The ice storm last winter has damaged it but she still looks pretty healty. I am no tree expert but is it possible it was around in the 1860's?


Thanks for the info guy's. (n/t)

will help you determine what type of tree it is. Once you know that you can find out a ton of info on growth rate. From your picture one thing is for certain...she sure has been growing there a LONG time!!LOL
Gather some leaves , and a twig specimen .... Libraries

usually have "keys" to identify all common US trees , and are normally
identified from their leaves .
Published information on the type should reveal ways to estimate it's age . but if not , take pics of it to your nearest University , or your nearest State or Federal Forestry office , and ask if their research has included any taking of borings, or core samples from similar trees in the area . Professional foresters and educators often maintain specialized mapping systems that have already marked that kind of information about that tree , or it's neighbors .
Their specialized maps can also show all the records of fires , logging activities dates , road development , and so forth .
Old sawmill workers will also know these answers .
Good luck with this project .... Looks like a great starting point !!

Hey tsgman: where were these photos taken? Looking for a tree just like this for a film shoot we're putting together and would love any memory of the whereabouts of these trees and their surroundings!
