Turner gives you sound advice. He is part of American Forests National Cadre of expert tree measurers. We can help teach you how to measure trees to a high level of accuracy. Without that accuracy, big tree lists are more popularity contests than they are serious statements on tree size. Your biggest field challenge may be to get others on board with you in terms of doing the measuring right. We can help there to, but it basically must fall to you to do the recruiting and training. We have plenty of training materials we can send your way. Do you have a laser rangefinder and clinometer yet?
