Your reports on Shu Swamp are very valuable. I get the idea from the data you've presented that the RHI for Shu is under 120, but probably not by much. Do you have a good take on the RHI for that site?

Bob, I do think it's realistic to suspect the Shu Swamp RHI to come in at less than 120. Red Oak is likely the only non-tulip species to break 120 there. The Tulips are top notch but growth is only a bit above average for the rest. Welwyn Preserve is likely to put up the highest RHI for Long Island from what I've seen. Inwood is still tops for SE NY.
