On March 14, 2010 the Eastern Native Tree Society and Western Native Tree Society switched from discussion lists on Google Groups to a new discussion list in a Bulletin Board format at: http://www.ents-bbs.org/index.php Posts made since the inception of the BBS on March 14, 2010 will be sorted and archived on the BBS. Click on the link to go to the equivalent section on the new BBS. This website will continue to serve as a front end for the ENTS and WNTS groups. It will continue to serve as a repository of older posts, and will serve as the host site for special projects and features that are not well suited for a BBS format. Please visit the BBS for the latest information and trip reports.
Field Trips and Discussions
Great Basin National Park, Nevada http://gorp.away.com/gorp/activity/wildlife/topten_oldgrowth3.htm Bristlecone pine is the oldest of the old. While the bristlecone pine range includes the California's White and Inyo Mountain Range (there are trees in Inyo National Forest) perhaps the best place to see them is at Great Basin National Park, which has the three largest surviving stands.

Nevada Big Tree
The Nevada Division of Forestry's State Big Tree Program is looking for
the largest tree of every native and introduced species found growing in
Nevada. Nevada's Big Tree program is patterned after the American
Forestry Association's 'National Champion Trees' program which
recognizes the biggest tree of every species growing in the United
States and encourages their preservation. Nevada's program, started in
1992, is a chance to show that not only does Nevada have trees, but has
large trees of many different species.
