Matt,

Your appreciation for understanding site potential is giant leap forward. I am constantly surprised at how many tree people fail to put the numbers into context. If tuliptrees on a site can't make it to over 125 or 130 feet, we're very unlikely to see a 150-foot pignut hickory on the site, as an example. This idea can be expanded to urban environments. Are we likely to see a 150-foot tuliptree in someone's yard, and so on?

It is plain to see that you, Brian, Eli, George, Turner, Tom, etc. have joined the ranks of the superstars of NTS. Once you get bitten by the bug, the condition appears to be permanent. But what is really gratifying is to work to take the analysis to a higher level, which is what you are doing.

We look forward to what you, Steve, etc. along with old eagle-eye Will can pull out of that site you will be visiting.

Will, Steve, Rand,

I enjoyed the site visit today and have many takeaways. Some of them will take a little while to sink in, but I can think of some that are immediate and tangible. I have insights from Will on how to measure in a cluttered environment. I have ideas from Steve that will allow me to tweak my equipment a bit and Rand gave me a couple techniques on getting good spread numbers.

Thanks guys, we'll have to do it again!

- Matt

Matt-

We were fortunate the mosquitoes were scarce today.
