Colorado workshop

Post by dbhguru » Thu Jul 19, 2018 9:06 pm

Hi Ents,

Well, today’s tree-measuring workshop at Regis University was a success. It was atended by about 42 or 43 foresters and arborists. So, under the umbrella of American Forests, we have held these workshops at the following locations:

Cook Forest State Park (2)
Mohawk Trail State Forest
San Juan National Forest
Dartmouth College
Vriginia Tech
Patrick Henry’s Red Hill Pkantation (NPS)
University of Tennessee
Landis Arboreteum
Regis University
Plus a special training session in Cambridge, MD

There will be others, but I’m in no rush to schedule the next one.

Although, these events carry the American Forests logo, NTS is no less represented.

Just wanted to share these successes with our esteemed members.

Way to go, Bob! But we're still waiting for you (and Ray?) to come back to Georgia so we can get you INTO a tree, not just underneath one.

Hmmmm, it's been a loooong time since I've shinnied up a tree, and I'll go out on a limb here (tee hee) and guess Bob's a bit out of practice too. But who knows... if there's ice cream waiting up there....

Bob- A very prestigious list and it keeps getting longer thanks to your tenacity. I've enjoyed the several I have participated in. Maybe I can make one up your way in the future. Larry

Larry,

All the attendees measure trees for championship status. However, I dialed back the Regis U. workshop a bit. Fewer mathematical processes presented. Even so, I think about half the attendees would have preferred even more dialing back. Still, their interest in circumference measurements was the highest of any workshop. There are lots of cultivars on the Regis campus with challenging forms. So, we had excellent discussions on all the topics that are discussed here on the BBS. They were especially interested in methods of execution.
