Let's see. I'm unsure that there is all that much local interest, although there may be a couple people in the class I'm taking at Feather River (Intro to Environmental Studies) that might be interested in learning the basics of tree measurement. Some places that may be good options (plenty of trees, nearby airport, large town/city, etc.) are Bend, OR; Reno, NV; Chico, CA; and Placerville, CA.

As for the college independent study idea, I'll have to check with my instructor to see if she knows. I'm good at Trig and Geometry (much better than I am at algebra). And I am pretty sure I know the difference between a single stem and a multi stem, as well as Sine vs Tangent (Tangent was a pain in the behind because of how much gear I needed to pack around and the inaccuracy of the results).
