New mission?

ENTS, As the clock ticks away, NTS seems to be fading away. Lately, we've been indebted to Brian Beduhn for keeping us afloat with meaningful data on the southern Appalachian tall tree hotspots. Different people have taken a turn at posting, but the daily number of posts for such a distinguished org...

FIA-COLE volume model for Silver Maple

Ents, Figuring out the volume of the above ground part of a tree is an NTS specialty. Above ground volume, its dry biomass, and the carbon component of the biomass is the purpose of a model developed in 2005. I call an adaptation of that model FIA-COLE and use it to compute volume and biomass of a n...

Re: Rucker Comparisons

Ents, Today Jared Lockwood and I went up stream on little Broad Brook to update the sites RHI. Screen Shot 2020-05-16 at 6.26.10 PM.png This is basically our backyard. I expect that we can improve on white oak and maybe white ash. Oh yes, the pignut hickory noe has a name. It's Miss Piggy. Bob

Bryan,

We have a lot more Massachusetts sites than those listed. I’ll post them in the next few days to keep your good work rolling. BTW, the WP for MTSF is 176.2 feet now.

Re: Long time no post

John, We welcome you back into the fold. As of late, the BBS has been lightly visited, but it continues to serves as an archive for valuable big tree/tall tree information available nowhere else. We also continue to make progress on measurement methods, although that subject is of relatively minor i...

Basically, you are the only one left in the mountain South of an original strong southern team of tree measurers, and we ...

Canyon Comparisons

Ents, For some measuring diversion, I've been looking at canyons on Google Earth with the intention of validating claims made by Internet posters about which is the biggest, deepest, etc. For extent, of course, the Grand Canyon wins, but one commonly reads that the deepest canyon in the contiguous U...
