Western States Rucker Comparisons

Post by bbeduhn » Tue Oct 13, 2020 10:39 am

For many western states, A few species dominate sites. Therefore, for many sites, I will use an RHI 3 index and perhaps even other creative numbers since we don't have anywhere near the data that we have on eastern states.

It's amazing those Idaho trees are so tall 400 miles from the Pacific Ocean. Are there Rocky Mountain Douglas firs over 200 feet tall in Idaho? I assume these Idaho trees are the easternmost current 200 footers in the United States.

Brian:
Some additional measurements from Wyoming in the Grand Tetons:
Engelman Spruce 131.4', Cascade Canyon
Narrowleaf Cottonwood 92.6', Along Pacific Creek
Lodgepole Pine 90.6', String Lake area
Subalpine Fir 80.4;, Colter Bay area
I Believe the 131.9' Englemann Spruce from Phillips Pass may also be in the Grand Tetons.

An additional measurement from South Dakota
Bur Oak 58.1', Horsethief Lake, Black Hills National Forest
