tree climbing in the Tionesta old-growth

Are there any tree climbers out there who might be interested in climbing some old-growth hemlock trees in the Tionesta Research Natural Area to help gather viable cones?

Not sure this is the route we'll be going yet (Tionesta) but wanted to get the idea out there on the 'radar screen' to see if there would be any interest.

Thank you!

I am at the TCI/NTS Tree Climbing Rendezvous and will make an announcement. You will have plenty of people interested!

Thanks for making the announcement Will. It would be near impossible to gather cones from the largest trees in the Tionesta RNA without climbing them!

We made some excellent contacts here at the rendezvous of tree climbers who are very anxious to get involved with us. These are really great people who are going to be active.

The rendezvous was one of the coolest events I have attended. What a great group of folks. Will and I can't say enough good things about them. We'll have a report later.

Hello!

My name is T.C. Mazar. Myself and my associate Alan Krieg studied this weekend in Georgia with Will and Bob in the subjects of ground based measurement and aerial measurement/crown mapping. We'd love the opportunity to collect viable seeds in the old growth of PA. In fact, any type of old-growth canopy access in Pennsylvania is what we are looking for with regards to any type of research mission. We are climber technicians, we are both insured and we are both looking to become a big part of this cause in canopy access and research. Any contact information would be greatly appreciated.

Hello!

I just sent a quick reply. I'm new with this website--just getting the hang of the controls. Anyway, I'm not sure who got the message I just sent, but let's try this again. My name is T.C. Mazar. This weekend my associate Alan Krieg and I had the opportunity to study with Will and Bob in the areas of ground based measurements and aerial measurements/crown mapping. We'd love the opportunity to be involved with viable seed collection in PA old growth hemlock. In fact we'd like to be involved with any type of research project in PA old growth canopies. We are climber technicians, fully insured and very excited to examine the old growth canopies of Pennsylvania in the name of research and accurate data collection. It would be a joy to be a part of the NTS legacy. Any contact information and further information on this project would be great. Thanks again!

This is the third attempt at a post to this discussion. Myself and my associate are extremely interested in climbing the old growth hemlocks in PA. We trained with Bob and Will this weekend at the TCI/NTS climber's rendezvous in Georgia. Crossing my fingers that this works. I'm new to the website and I'm not seeing my posts immediately.

Hello,

This is one more attempt at posting to this feed. I've been having trouble, somehow my replies aren't making it onto this feed. But, my name is T.C. Mazar and I am interested in the viable hemlolck seed collection in Tionesta old-growth. Myself and my associate Alan Krieg are climbing technicians and have trained with Bob and Will in ground based measurements and aerial tape dropes/crown mapping. I'm hoping to get contact information in regards to the project.

T. C. Welcome to NTS- Hi my name is Larry I'm doing the Live Oak Project. You are getting through but he is not responding. Our forum is open and whenever a topic is started anyone can respond to it. He just has not checked his topic as of late I believe. Try getting his email it should be posted under his name. I couldn't make the gathering you guys did in Atlanta this weekend heard it was great! I have always wanted to climb with some of you pros. We have several members who climb and I'll go up sometime in the future. Larry T
