...of course the ideal spotting would be shots of the lot - roots, trunk, bark, crown, flowers, leaves, seeds... but that's not always easy to do I guess. Some of your northern hemisphere trees must be magnificent in a few moths.

Yep I saw that one. It's a good vertical shot of the tree. Thanks for that. Even without leaves the proportions of the tree and the shape of the crown can be guessed at. Won't be long for the leaves now surely :)

Sure thing. On some of my other tree spottings (such as the Shagbark Hickory I just uploaded) I included I picture taken from the ground looking upwards along the trunk of the tree. Is that helpful? Are there other angles or features of the tree I should attempt to capture as well? I would include pictures of the leaves, but the trees in my area have not yet begun to leaf out.

Hi blackicecc... any chance you could show us more of these trees?
