Update on UT-35 measurement

Post by John Montague » Mon Sep 09, 2013 1:51 pm

Earlier this year, I reported on my initial casual measurements of UT-35. This is a redwood on LIDAR's hit list that has never been formally measured. I recently returned to the tree and performed a formal measurement with an Impulse 200LR, tripods, and prism poles.

UT-35 checks in at 352.1 feet or 107.3 meters.

Its new name is "Totem". Totem is located in Humboldt Redwoods State Park.

Fabulous! Thanks for sharing. The mere exestence of this great tree is a reminder of what may still lurk out there, but I suppose with the aid of LIDAR, the super trees can all be identified. Do you know how many candidates remain to be field-measured in the 350-foot height class that have been identified by LIDAR?
