Re: tall black cherry re-measures

Dale,

Awesome!!! Man I'd love to see them Cook black cherries. Here in the southeastern corner of Pa the max height is around 110'. Its been awhile since we've compared notes. Shoot me an email and maybe we can update the state Rucker Index.

Re: LiDAR Coverage for the Eastern USA

I tried to process Patapsco Valley State Park and rolled snake eyes. The LiDAR is missing crown data and basically 2-dimenstional. The only LiDAR set I could find for that area is from 2004 and of the lowest resolution I've seen. Will have to wait until higher resolution LiDAR comes out. Sorry I co...

Re: LiDAR for Brandy Wine Creek SP - Tallest is 168 feet

I see that there is a Tuliptree Nature Preserve at the far west part of the park. The tallest hits are not located in the nature preserve so I would guess that area has some age. Brian, The preserve states that the oldest trees are 190-220 years old. I would say there are pockets of trees in the sa...

Re: LiDAR for Brandy Wine Creek SP - Tallest is 168 feet

I had a request to process LIDAR returns for Brandy Wind Creek State Park. I get a number of trees over 160 feet, with the tallest emergent top being 168 feet. The attached height banding is green 20m, yellow 30m, red 40m and white is 50 meters. This is a tall forest with a nicely uniform canopy. M...

Re: What most impresses you?

Ray, I may have to agree with Don. As I glance through the forest and at first see an opening ,almost bare, in the understory do I truely look up. The crown spread of a dominant forest tree supresses most everything beneath it, at least here in the hardwoods of the northeast. A dominant shrub become...

Re: Hello from Delaware

Hello Pat, I have covered most of the public land in your aboved mentioned areas. I have some superlative sites/trees that could use some updates/remeasurements. You may know of a few sites I'm unaware of. I'd like to remeasure the likely national height record dawn redwood at the gates of Mount Cub...

Re: Maryland Canopy Height Map

Darian, I am looking/waiting anxiously for your reports. The mapping u have shared is the kind of data we as NTSers value. I have documented several of the sites I've seen on the map and would have to say it underscored some sites but also warrants further investigation for others. County's I've doc...

Re: Cylburn Arboretum

Turner, Druid Hill Park, which is part of the Baltimore Zoo, is definitely worth investigating. In my case it's worth a sleepover. It's been on my hit list for years. I believe there is a connector trail from the zoo to the arboretum. I believe the park is second to the Philadelphia Zoo as far as ag...
