Pike State Forest Report (West of SR 41)

Post by Matt Markworth » Sun Oct 30, 2016 3:15 pm

NTS,

I don't know all the ins and outs of Ohio's State Forest High Conservation Value Forest (HCVF) program, but here's a report I created for an environmental organization in an effort to seek additional protections for this site. My next report will be on a very special ravine in Hocking State Forest.

I think that these types of activities help explain one of the reasons for the "why" of our accurate measuring activities, with conservation efforts being one of many reasons for accurate tree dimension measuring.

The PowerPoint presentation looks best in slide show mode:

Matt, Very nice report.

Matt-
Very well done...you had enough of a vision to know what you wanted it to look like before you started, I'll bet!
