Re: castle sequoia fire

Hopefully that one made it thru the fire, at least if it did it wont have all the thorny bushes around its base. The one i am really worried about is the summit road tree, remember it had that big sequoia bole laying upon its base? I am really hoping that debris's fire didn't light up and eat thru t...

Re: castle sequoia fire

Re: limb and tree measurement

After replacing the radii with diameters that is. the above formula is for a simple conical frustum yes? i was thinking that if i took frequent data points on the trunk and did ...

Re: limb and tree measurement

what i have been trying to do is take measurements at points where there is a slope break in the silhouette of the tree rather than at the traditional 60, 120, 180 feet heights. it seems like it would provide a truer estimate. and i usually wrap a tape measure around the tree 3 times, one level at c...
