Re: The tallest tree in the east is probably in Tennessee

Everyone,

Here's a link to the tall tree suitability model overlayed onto a google map. Might make it easier to inspect.

It takes a few seconds to load the overlay, so be patient.

Cheers,
Ian

Re: The tallest tree in the east is probably in Tennessee

Will - cool about the new lidar data, it will indeed be a great test for the model, and great for the park as well. If the model does well, that might be worth writing up for a paper in Southeastern Naturalist or something. Do you know who is coordinating the lidar acquisition on the NPS end? Josh -...

The tallest tree in the east is probably in Tennessee

Hey all, I've been working a little bit more with the lidar data in the vicinity of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and what I've found suggests that we haven't exhausted the Smokies trove of tall-tree riches. My father and I got lucky last year when one of the first tall lidar points we visite...

Re: LiDAR and Liriodendrons - Deep Creek Watershed

Thanks for all the great feedback, guys. I'm definitely not making any claims about the fork ridge poplar until we can get some better measurements. A laser rangefinder is definitely in my future... Will -- Lets try and do a revisit in the fall after the leaves drop. The baselines that I was using w...

Re: LiDAR and Liriodendrons - Deep Creek Watershed

Thanks for all the great feedback, guys. I'm definitely not making any claims about the 'Fork Ridge Poplar' just yet. Laser rangefinders are definitely in my future... Will -- Lets schedule a revisit trip sometime this fall after leaf-off. The baselines that I was using for the height measurements w...

LiDAR and Liriodendrons - Deep Creek Watershed

Everyone, I spent a few days with my Dad in the Deep Creek watershed in the Smokies this past weekend and we found some notable trees that might be of interest to ENTS. As a first-time poster, I should introduce myself first. I'm a graduate student at UNC in their Curriculum for the Environment and ...
