Timmins Honour Roll of Trees

Timmins Honour Roll of Trees. 50 km circle around town ~ half hour drive to get there.

There are many different Tree Honour Rolls on the net. The Ontario Oldest Trees relies on age of trees and is great for those that carry an increment corer with them all the time.

I am thinking diameter will be easier for most to measure, until the tree age can be determined. We can also use height and diameter to estimate of the age.

Get involved - how you can help : send all the information and a picture please. Links and suggestions always welcomed.
Look for this symbol, geocacheit means there is a geocache at the tree. Click the symbol and it will take you to the information on the geocache and the entries from those that have found the cache.

Pictures of Trees.
Species and Lat/Long will make sure you are looking at the correct tree in the album. Follow this link to the page that has all the pictures.

When you visit one of these trees please take a picture of you with it and send it to me, I will add it to the pictures page. When there are enough pictures I will make an album for each tree species.

Species : Common name (Scientific name)

Dimensions : Circumference, at breast height (1.3m from the ground) is the easiest to get, but height can be very easy to figure out too.

Location : Lat / Long have been linked, so just click and it will take you to a map of the location. We will use 100km diameter circle centered on Timmins, any tree within 50km ``as the crow flys`` from Timmins City Hall, more or less. If you do not have the ability for GPS let us know at submission and we will get it done.

Notes : Please give as much information as you can provide. ( location, condition, etc.)
Source : Who, who are you?
Date : When you last visited the tree.
