Big Tree Hunter

This can lead to fraught confrontations. "The new coordinator [of Global ReLeaf], he's very reluctant to verify without getting the owner's permission," says Cagle. "But sometimes Richard will just go up and start measuring."

"If somebody's home," says Pomorski, "I knock on the door."

"Sometimes, if they're out there shouting at him, 'I'm going to shoot you,' he doesn't know they're saying anything," laughs the tall, rangy Cagle.

What's the big tree hunter's favorite tree? "Probably the white oak or the American elm, tall and like an umbrella or a vase. I love cottonwoods when they're big and healthy, though their sap sticks on the car."

But he's reluctant to pick favorites. Mostly, he says, "I just like to be around trees." So much so, says Cagle, that when they pass a spot where the land has been cleared for construction, she can hear him murmur, "murder."    (end of article)
