Re: Coast Redwood bigger than average

The tape war rather hard to get around this tree. Took Atkins maybe 30 minutes to get it where he wanted it.

New 108.5 meter redwood in HRSP

I recently discovered a new tall redwood in HRSP, which I have named "Eclipse". I performed a tripod survey with an Impulse 200LR and prism pole. The survey revealed this tree to be 355.98 feet or 108.5 meters. The tree is located in Humboldt Redwoods State Park, and it was mysteriously absent from LIDAR's hit list. Note the attached picture. Eclipse has the unique feature of a neighboring trunk that leans into Eclipse and then wraps itself around the upper trunk.

Michael Taylor is credited as co-discoverer of this tree. While he was not present for locating and measuring the tree, it was Michael's LIDAR research that directed me to this particular patch of forest in HRSP.
