Hi Brian,

Just curious- is the intent to edit and update the individual state posts as time permits? I'm just noticing that in some cases the numbers used are from the older posts for a given site, rather than their most recent numbers, like Ragged Mountain in VA. I realize there's a lot of material to go through- can we help by going through our most recent material and sending you the lists? And are they intended to represent historic RHIs or current? I see the Wissahickon RHI includes the historic maximums for trees that lost height or died.

I really appreciate that you're putting this all together in one place.

Erik

Erik,
I've been using historical heights in all cases. Yes, it's an awful lot to go through, but it's a labor of love. If anyone sees any discrepancies, please let me know and I'll update them.

Some measurers did not want their numbers to be used for the database on a different site several years ago. That's why I'm doing it for easy reference and comparison. The information is not intended to be posted on other sites without measurer's permission. I will likely put the measures' names om each site in the near future.
Brian
