Re: Setting up a GPS Arboretum

A couple things that might be of interest; When you determine the GPS location of a tree, if your device has an option for taking many readings and averaging them, the uncertainty of location can be dramatically reduced (even with a better machine a single reading may be occasionally 100 ft off). I ...

I will be taking a trip toward the end of the month through the Finger Lakes and would like to stop at some new old growth spots. Last year I visited these: Smith Woods in Trumansburg (nice!) Fischer Tract , part of Cornell Plantations, Newfield NY (Only the center seems to be old growth) Robert Tre...

Re: Washington Grove City Park, NY

Re: Trail Markers; best method for trees?

The blazes are for use on established or recovered hiking trails in a county park I adopted. They need to be fairly obvious because all levels of hikers use these trails.

Been doing a little mapping of big trees in the area, but nothing finished yet. Powder Mills Park has a fair number of big trees (4 ft diam or more, in...
