GA height max list

Post by eliahd24 » Tue Jan 25, 2011 2:40 pm

I've updated the Georgia state Height Max List. I'll list all those over 100' in the body of this post and attach a .pdf of the entire list (tallest to shortest). Please let me know of any taller invidividuals for each species. I'm happy to share data with any interested parties as well- all of this is available in Excel format too.

Eli,

Excellent job of compiling this list. It is amazing that you have data for so many different species of trees. By chance did you do a RHI50 for the state of Georgia?

Ed- I did not, but that would be very easy with the current list that Jess and I have compiled. I'll be able to work on that next week.
