Anders Run Natural Area

Post by MarkGraham » Mon Jan 11, 2021 12:55 pm

I found this posting on the Native Tree Society trip reports for Anders Run Natural Area.

This area is near Warren, Pa, about 35 miles north of Cooks Forest, and is well described on web sites. There is some old growth and a loop hiking trail which is described as having steep sections.

After this field trip was published there was LiDAR collected around 2008. I processed this LiDAR, there were many crowns 150-161 feet in 2008. The trip report describes a 164 foot tree. Certainly some of these trees have increased height in the last 18-20 years.

If someone does hiking and measuring in NW PA this would be an interesting area to assess.

Attached is screen grab of LiDAR, orange is over 125 feet and red is over 150 feet. If you are interested in a kml file which will open on Google Earth let me know and I will email it to you.
