Re: Insect eating Fungi for use on HWA

Ed, I agree. I don't mean to endorse the article by providing a link to it, but provided it for informational purposes only. It seemed predisposed to a certain conclusion from the start. Anyway, at least the beetle success had a range of best to worst, but the best seemed way too optimistic. I provi...

Re: Very huge tree in Thailand

Kouta, Sorry for the delay on this one.... if I recall correctly, my brother said that he had the tallest kapok/ceiba's over 50m in Costa Rica based upon using his 100m climbing ropes all the way to the ends? and more recently, possible mahogany in the 30-40m range in Ecuador. He got a laser only re...

Insect eating Fungi for use on HWA

Well, I've been watching for updates on the insect eating fungi in whey for treating hemlock woolly adelgid infestations. It was a topic of research by Scott Costa and others at the University of Vermont a few years ago. http://library.uvm.edu/jspui/handle/123456789/140 Finally, a little more inform...

Re: Very huge tree in Thailand

Darrin, I would think that you could find a different rangefinder without a built-in clinometer for well under 500 Ringgit, and if there is a local auction site like eBay, you may find one for even less. Golfers often sell them used. I'm not sure what a decent clinometer would cost in your local mar...

Re: Very huge tree in Thailand

Darrin, Those are awesome tree pictures. I wish that I could visit them. My brother once big tree hunted for champion Ceibas by helicopter in Costa Rica in a helicopter with Jim Fowler of (Marlin Perkin's sidekick in the old television show, Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom). My brother climbed a few ...

Re: Backpack LiDAR

Ground based LiDAR has the same problems as handheld lasers. They have trouble reaching the true tree tops from underneath without using lots of scanning positions. By the way, our local newspaper had a story about a company that is using a scanning lidar unit to create 3D models of old covered brid...

Re: Backpack LiDAR

Yes, I've heard of ground based LiDAR for weather applications as well as local canopy density/ leaf area index type of work... There's a fair amount of info on it on the web

Re: LIDAR Application, Kenai Peninsula, South Central Alaska

Don,

That seems like a real practical application of Lidar. It will allow them to save money and to reallocate human resources to other important tasks. Hopefully, data sharing will be considered so that the Lidar data could be used by others such as us.

Re: Updating the MAX list

I'll take Wisconsin, but I should get Michigan's Upper Peninsula, too since my Avatar white pine photo was taken there. It really looks like it should be part of Wisconsin anyway... and it's closer, too.

LIDAR

Reposted from a sequence of posts by Paul Jost, Starting February 19, 2009. Will, There was some mention of LIDAR applications in the past here. The USGS has a LIDAR web site: http://lidar.cr.usgs.gov/ which includes a data viewer for finding publicly available LIDAR data: http://lidar.cr.usgs.gov/...
