LTI Historical Moment - The Criterion

by aclarke 6. August 2012 09:55

The Laser that Revolutionized Forest Mapping and Measuring Forever.

It was because of the United States Forest Service that LTI initially got involved in the professional measurement industry.

Plant a Tree and Fight Crime!

by mphippen 5. July 2012 08:21

The article states, with “Just a 10 percent increase in leaf canopy was associated with a 12 percent drop in crime.” This is a remarkable finding and flies in the face of the long held belief that bushes and trees provide cover for criminals.
