Reticle Testing

Hi Ents,

   I don't post much about tree measuring methodology on the BBS these days since it is the interest of the very few. Still, the BBS remains a legitimate repository of measuring methods. The role of the reticle-based monocular has a bright future in the American Forests champion tree program and in NTS. Accordingly, the attached Excel worksheet shows the results of the first of many tests to distinguish the theoretical from the practical. Which methods can be successfully used in the field?

Hi Bob-  When I get up to New England for a visit with you, hopefully this spring or next fall, this is one of the things I want to learn more about.  So in the future I can do some volume measurements of a few of the largest Live Oaks.

Larry,

  I look forward to your visit. We'll do some detailed modeling of some of the bigger pines.
