Progress in the LUEF (reblog)
Some fun posts here Michelle. I’m just catching up now!
The summer has been highly productive so far! To this date, we have tagged, identified, and measured the DBH of all the trees in the LUEF.
Now we are locating all the trees in ArcMap, a program that allows us to mesh our tree data with geographic information systems, providing the spatial component to our forest map.
Once we are done with that (hopefully in about a week and a half) we will move onto Emmaus South Mountain Preserve, which will serve as a control forest–an example of natural secondary regrowth without the initial condition of the planting arrangement of the LUEF.
