Crown Spread Webinar - Tuesday, May 20th, 12pm EDT

Post by Matt Markworth » Fri May 16, 2014 6:47 pm

Hi All,

Part 1 of the Webinar Series is on Tuesday! A huge thanks to Bob, Don, American Forests, and Laser Technology, Inc. for making this happen. I'm looking forward to spending the next 3 Tuesdays enjoying tree measurement talk during my lunch hour.

If you haven't already registered, here are some benefits of attending:

- With a full hour dedicated to crown spread, there are surely some new things to learn!
- Circumference and height will be covered in the following 2 weeks.
- If you attend all 3 sessions, you'll be entered to win one of two Trupulse 360's. (Update: the LTI moderator on the webinar mentioned that there are actually 6 chances to win, with each webinar having 2 chances)
- Each webinar qualifies as 1.0 hour Cat. 1-CF credit.
- There is no cost to attend.
- Why not take the opportunity to learn a few new things while eating lunch/brunch?

Bob, Don,

Great presentation! The photos and diagrams were a really good way to illustrate the more advanced methods. Some day I hope to have a built in compass so that the calculation will be a "P sub cake" for me too:)

I was also very impressed with the level of engagement and thoughtful questions from the audience.

Looking forward to the next two sessions,
Matt

Matt,

Thanks for posting the review. It was a lot of fun, and I was pleased with the audience participation. I'm sure Don was equally. Crown spread often gets shortchanged as the third measurement feeding the formula. Hopefully, we've elevated it a little.

Don will be the keynote presenter on Circumference, and I will be his backup. He has his work cut out for him, but if anybody is up to the task, it is Don. We've spent the better part of a year thinking about the issues. I think the Circumference Webinar will quite possibly be the most important of the three.

The NTS role as a participant with American Forests, LTI, and maybe SAF, grows in importance. We're cooking with gas.
