Re: Who is using LiDAR?

Hi Ed,

I have the LIDAR dataset for NC and have used it to find trees in the Piedmont and in GSMNP. I use QGIS to view the data.

Taking LIDAR to new heights

NASA seems poised to add a satellite based LIDAR probe on the international space station that will be capable of mapping above ground biomass from 50 degrees north latitude to 50 degrees south latitude - a swath that comprises the almost all tropical and temperate forests on Earth. I wonder if it w...

Thanks everyone. I know just the place to plant this metasequoia. It will be fun to watch it grow.

What kind of baby redwood is this?

Hi all,

A friend gave me this sapling. He said he bought it from someone who simply called it a "redwood" and said not to plant it within 30 feet of any building or other tree. Can anyone help me identify the species? Thanks!

Re: Who's On Board?

Hi Don, I am very interested in helping with this effort. I think the NTS-AF collaboration is a natural fit. I have the required (entry level) gear and the passion which I imagine are the two biggest hurdles. I know there are many eminently qualified ENTS in the western half of my state, and if I ca...

Re: Tree Maximums - Tree of the Week: Tuliptree

Hi Matt, I echo what others have said-Thank you for all the work you do on the forum and especially in the Tree of the Week program and your amazing max list. I am particularly passionate about tuliptrees as you can probably tell and I'm planning to compile a list of all known tuliptrees that are ei...
