Re: Measurement Certification

Just a quick reply on the Moodle course: Our basic tree climbing course is designed so that people don't graduate from it until they 1) complete the coursework and quizzes online, 2) do several practice climbs after learning practical techniques from the DVD which goes with the course, and 3) pass a...

Re: Measurement Certification

I'm thrilled to see this discussion. Especially since I hope to be able to recruit recreational tree climbers into the work of measuring trees, and they'll probably all be inexperienced. So I hope you guys will come up with a set of guidelines that will make it possible to validate data without havi...

Re: Teton Pass, WY

Bob, Your wondrous pictures make me ache for the mountains. Actually, they made us change our plans. After running the "Fun Climb" in Portland at the ISA's Annual Convention, we'll be spending some time in Oregon. I'm pretty sure I'll get my fix there. Thanks for taking the time to post and comment ...

Re: Recruiting new citizen tree scientists

Good news! This is exactly what we hoped would happen. Yesterday I got an email from a friend who went to Eli's "Tree Measuring Workshop" for the Atlanta Tree Climbing Club. Alan is an experienced climber who lives in Nashville. He went on Ebay (for the first time) and bought himself a clinometer an...

Re: Planned series of discussions

Awesome! Happily awaiting everything you've got to offer! Will use the TCI website, newsletter, and Facebook page in whatever ways I can to publicize.

Recruiting new citizen tree scientists

As many of you know, I've been trying to figure out how to move the TCI "Citizen Science" initiative forward. Here's where things stand: I just had a VERY helpful conversation with Steve Galehouse. He helped me decide that: 1) The centralized database that TCIer Paul Giers has created of all the sta...

Re: Food for thought

Thanks for all these comments, guys. I'm not a scientist, just somebody who loves trees and happens to run a big tree climbing organization. For someone like me, who is trying to figure out how to entice recreational and professional tree climbers to get involved with measuring trees and NTS work, a...

Re: SINE method training for tree climbers

What a shame that we didn't think to film Eli's presentation. Does anybody have -- or could someone create -- a "How to Measure Trees from the Ground" video or article that I could put up on the TCI website? I can add a brief description of the NTS with a call to contribute to NTS work. This would b...
