More "Super Sugars" - Tall Incense Cedar and White Fir

Post by M.W.Taylor » Mon Nov 02, 2020 1:35 pm

Yesterday I met up with Duncan Kennedy and John Montague to explore some nice montane forest on the western side of the Sierra Nevada. It was a grueling bushwhack as we tried to cover as much area as possible before getting dark.

Results:

White Fir
dbh: ~5'
height: 230'

Incense Cedar
dbh: 5.9'
height: 210'

Sugar Pine #1
dbh: 9,0'
height: 239.3'

Sugar Pine #2
dbh: 9.1'
height: 263.65'

Once again, thank you for inviting me along! I'm confident that there's plenty more to explore yet in that area; I'm working on the LiDAR analysis for it today.

Also, I'm still somewhat ashamed you and John outpaced me. Clearly I need to focus more on my cardio; I'm way younger than y'all and was still left in the dust.

Michael,

Mind-blowing! You guys continue to make astounding discoveries. I'm sooooo jealous.

I hope the fires have subsided out there. Did any of the well known redwood sites suffer damage?
