Re-measure of Tall Sugar Pine

Re-measure of the Tall Sugar Pine near Tiller


(A personal accounting by Steve Colburn, Director of Sales, North America for Laser Technology)

I had the opportunity to meet up with Michael Taylor this winter, coordinator of the National Register of Big Trees for California and discoverer of many of the world’s Tallest Trees. He drove up from Northern California to join me across the border in Canyonville, OR. After a quick cup of coffee and an enthusiastic conversation about his latest measurement project - detailed surface modeling of giant redwood trunks - we were headed east towards Tiller. Making the proper left at the Y and entering the Umpqua National Forest, we followed the signs (rare for the site of an official Tall Tree) and arrived at the Tall Sugar Pine.  Species Pinus lambertiana, notable for its wispy top, sweet sap and large cones, the sugar pine grows only here in the mountains of Oregon and California, extending south into the Baja of Mexico.

Use Two Trails Software with Laser Technology Products

Two Trails Software

"What do you do where GPS is not available?"


Timber cruisers and foresters needed a software program that focused on their needs out in the field and The Forest Management Service Center (FMSC) of the USDA Forest Service responded. Check out the popular surveying package Two Trails©. This software allows the operator to use a variety of survey methods to traverse the boundary of forest units and navigate to plot centers within the units in places where GPS is not available or accurate.

Specialized files are generated on the PC for cruise analysis and GIS portrayal. These spatial files are Geo-referenced and can easily be uploaded to ArcView or ArcMap. The spatial databases are attributed with calculated areas, perimeters and more. Two Trails will also generate files and drawings on the mobile-CE to help gather and edit data collection. View more information on Two Trails software.
