Re: Western States Rucker Comparisons

Very nice.

Do you have any references for Sitka spruce, there are some over 300 feet in Prairie Creek.

Here is reference I see, on conifers.org under Picea sitchensis section. It mentions 96.7 meters / 317 feet.

This is very cool.

There is another project underway that uses long wave form LiDAR to map forests down to the individual tree level. The scanning device is mounted underneath the International Space Station. Details are here.

Re: Western States Rucker Comparisons

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.

Preventing Wildfire Deaths in Western United States
