Re: White Pine film

Bob,

No problem on my end, though I have noticed that things seems awfully quiet on the BBS as of late. I saw your first post yesterday evening and just hadn't responded yet. I'm quite glad to hear that another of Ray's excellent films is in the making, I look forward to watching it.

Re: Another opportunity to participate in carbon

Bob, It seems only logical that substantially less carbon is sequestered and stored in the soil in a young forest compared to an old one, and think about it, a major disturbance such as a severe stand-leveling wind event, clearcutting, clearing for pasture, etc. will partially or completely kills th...

Earth

ENTS, I've always had an interest in poetry and have written a fair bit myself, I suppose I've finally drawn up the courage to share a bit of it. "The mighty ash choked, and it's our own fault We're all dying, an uncertain future I will bear witness, to the things to come So take our earth, and trea...

Re: Another opportunity to participate in carbon

Bob, I'm curious, was this strictly done by modeling individual or a few individual trees in a stand and averaging crown area and volume to calculate stand volume per acre? Or was any of this done by establishing fixed sampling plots and modeling everything within each plot? I have the suspicion tha...

Re: Where does the trunk end?

Erik, I fully agree. I've really started thinking more about what is a trunk, where does it become a limb, and how that, and person to person variations, affect our volume modeling. How can we compare trunk to crown ratios if we don't have a set definition of where a trunk should no longer be consid...

Re: Where does the trunk end?

Ryan, Now I've got a situation for you, I was hiking in the South Taconic Range recently where there is a lot of bear oak, but this species rarely grows beyond a human's height, yet they are very much trees in their form. In terms of trees vs. shrubs, I would call any sub-canopy woody plant that is ...

Where does the trunk end?

With all of the volume modeling talk recently, specifically that of big crowned hardwoods, I want to ask the simple question, where does the trunk end and the crown begin? Here is an example, I recently volume modeled a strange beech with a trunk that splits just 35-feet off the ground into over doz...

Re: Another opportunity to participate in carbon

Bob, Please do. I am happy to contribute anything that can be useful to our collective mission of volume measurement and carbon sequestration. I also found it odd that forestry standards for volume measurement fell substantially short even for the smaller tree, I figured it would only be off by a sm...

Re: Another opportunity to participate in carbon

Bob, I recently volume modeled a young (mature according to most foresters) 40-45 year old sugar maple on Perry Hill to compare to the already modeled mature tree, likely somewhere in the neighborhood of 200 years of age. I chose these two trees for this as they both exhibit common forest grown form...
