San Juans 2015

All,

I know some of the AF cadre folks are planning on meeting in Durango this coming June to teach some local folks the "new" methods. Do people have plans for some informal exploration in the area? If so, do people have dates?

Re: Benchmarks/Reference Marks

That said, as a surveyor, referencing monuments is firsthand operation where accurate and permanent measurements were expected. If I read you right, you're saying that you're very careful in your measuring, remeasuring, and think that where there are discrepancies, having a monument/reference point...

Benchmarks/Reference Marks

I apologize if this has been brought up before, but has there been any consideration in the use of independent benchmarks or references marks for aiding in highly accurate, repeated measurements of certain trees? Basically, instead of measuring a tree in relation to itself (I measured 115.6 ft 2 yea...

Re: Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge Part II

They look so, so much taller than anything else in the forest (from the pictures). Are we thinking they were left as some seed trees?

Re: Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge Loblolly Pines Part 1

That is quite a Loblolly!

So evidently the largest Loblolly in Mississippi is 15' 11" CBH and 124' tall and is located in the county. Do we know if it is on the refuge?

Re: Tree diversity comparison over the northern temperate wo

I guess it comes down to the definition of temperate and how the regions are defined. To me, a definition of a temperate forest would be were the majority of angiosperms are deciduous. In most cases, I think this would help to limit those subtropical/Mediterranean species from the comparison (I am a...

Re: Defense Act includes Hermosa Creek Wilderness Area

The big national groups have for the last five years or so largely directed their resources toward designating wilderness areas in the West. It probably has at least partly to do with the economic downturn at the end of 2008, continuing stagnant economy (and therefore drop off in funding), and need...

Re: Pike State Forest/Fort Hill Day Trip - 12/13/14

I always wanted to get down to Pike SF, but never made it. Matt, do you know any folks about the Ohio DNR that might have more info about the state forests? My understanding is they were mostly cut-over land acquire in early-mid 1900s. Some of the places have been monkeyed with since, but some have ...

Re: Forest Service considers knocking back old-growth forest

Sorry, but there is absolutely nothing in the article that says anything about the forest service cutting "old growth" to create more young forest habitat. Now that doesn't necessarily mean that the proposed changes are "good" ideas...... The actual public documents are here........
