Eastern Native Tree Society

The Eastern Native Tree Society (ENTS) is a cyberspace interest group devoted to the documentation and celebration of trees and forests of the eastern North America and around the world, through art, poetry, music, mythology, science, medicine, wood crafts, and collecting research data for a variety of purposes. ENTS is the premiere tree measuring group of the eastern forest. ENTS is a discussion forum for people who view trees and forests not just as a crop to be harvested, but also as something of value in their own right.   Membership is open to anyone with an interest in trees living anywhere in the world.

The Eastern Native Tree Society was established to accurately measure and record the tallest trees, historical trees, and ancient forests.  Eastern North America has been graced with forests of fantastic beauty and diversity. These forests have been heavily impacted by development, disease and human utilization. This unfortunate history has diverted our attention from the remarkably huge and ancient forests which have survived this catastrophe. Even today we are finding the largest and oldest trees ever recorded for some native species. The tallest white pine ever accurately recorded was recently documented in the Cataloochee district of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The oldest trees ever recorded in eastern North America have been recently discovered along the Black River, in eastern North Carolina.  ENTS is also intended as an archive for information on specific trees and stands of trees. ENTS will store data on accurately measured trees for historical documentation purposes, scientific research, and to resolve big tree disputes.
  • ENTS is the foremost organization for accurately measuring, mapping  and documenting the great trees and forests of Eastern North America.  Tree Measuring Guidelines of the Eastern Native Tree Society;

  • ENTS conducted the first detailed mapping of the branch and trunk structure and volume measurements for the largest Eastern trees, including -   The Middleton Oak and Sag Branch Tulip;  

  •   The Tsuga Search Project is documenting the great Eastern Hemlocks before they fall prey to the invasive Hemlock Woolly Adelgid;  

  • ENTS publishes a formal Journal - The Bulletin of the Eastern Native Tree Society - two to four times annually;

  • ENTS members provide reports on field trips made to forests found in the United States,  Canada, and from other locations around the world;

  • 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.
