    My little trees aren't looking so good.
    Can someone tell me when I can expect to see new growth begin and if these trees have a "dormant color" that is different from their non-dormant color?
    I haven't contacted the seller yet, but I will if I don't see some improvement soon. :(

    Actually, I find people like you are so removed from inside knowledge, you won't have a clue who really did what for what reason. In a nutshell, you probably have better idea what's going on inside your anus than whatever projects, posts or writings me and a few others tinkered with over the years. Literally. Because at least you can get a scope or your head up your butt to ascertain all the facts, as opposed to internet activity that inherently maintains a wall. So your opinion isn't worth two cents IMO. And the comment about "profit" is hollow from a business point of view. Most photographers or arborists I know continually advertise and broaden their influence and reputations. Your statement runs cross-grain to successful networking. I've met a few folks in person over the years who finally realized how duped they became about their own speculations. Who finally realized they formed a tainted conclusion based only on what their eyes had available to see.

    On another note ...

    South fork of the Smith River near Jedediah Smith redwood park.

    What makes the water look so green? Minerals?

    Serpentine mineral rock. I first learned about it at a botanical wayside about 10 miles up the highway where there's a bog of carnivorous plants called Darlintonia. The interpretive sign included information about the local mineral rock and water color in the river.

    Winter fog and mist. Literature seems to talk more about the late spring to summer fog, but there's ample during most seasons.

    Those remaining groves up Wilson Creek should be looked at.

    Ya feel better now? I guess you told me off.
    Well now, I have lived in Redwood country most of my life and explored a great deal of it, far more than most people dream off.
    Yes the Cocksmoker Creek gang profited from their little overhyped hike, in prestige and other non monetary things.
    Just how many Redwoods must be molested to charge the egos of a few? So, do tell, what new intel is garnered by driving spikes into yet another pristine tree?
    I have real on the ground knowledge on the subject, my head isn't up my ass and I'm thinking your's is.
    You are a lapdog follower.

    Mario's main interest in redwoods seems to be making money from his photography. Note the big advertisements in every post.
    His altruism is suspect.

    Taylor, Atkins, Sillett, etc., ... advanced redwood science, education and tree measuring practices. Taylor and Atkins have companies interacting with them to test new and existing equipment from what I gather, allowing them to help thousands of forest and tree workers across the globe do work more efficiently. In addition to new science about forests that helps private land holders plan future harvesting, Sillett aided crews filming for entertainment and education. In a nutshell, they put their boots on the ground, invested and completed college, worked diligently, and left behind something that millions of others can enjoy.

    Basically, that's a track record most other people compliment and appreciate.

    One more from today. The sun was starting to shine first thing up at Jedediah Smith park, so I drove down to Prairie Creek about 30 minutes south and it was overcast. I like the softer lighting.

    Are those the trees feeder roots poking through the dirt?

    Probably. There's so many roots around the big redwoods, if someone lifted needles they will probably see roots underneath. This spot doesn't get time to accumulate needles with over 80 yrs. of visitors stopping to look and wearing the needles into powder.

    A redwood we encountered recently. Nice setting where two brooks meet.

    Hey, Vaden - it appears that you and I may possibly be related!
