Big Tree New Measuring Guidelines
Tuesday, 09/06/2016 (09:15 AM - 04:30 AM)

People like big trees, and big tree competitions have been alive and well in America since the 1920s and a mainstay program of American Forests since 1940. However, accurately measuring large irregularly shaped trees has never been easy. There is surprising room for significant error even in basic measurements like trunk circumference. In 2013, American Forests accepted the challenge to upgrade measurement methods and establish an expert national tree-measuring force called the National Cadre. Since then an 86-page measuring guide has been produced and new techniques continue to be developed. This workshop is meant to present some history of tree measuring, the primary techniques used by the cadre, and a discussion of where errors are made and how to analyze and minimize them. The morning will be inside and a number of methods will be demonstrated in an afternoon field session. Come prepared for the field. Participants are invited to bring any height-measuring instruments, such as laser rangefinders and clinometers to the afternoon field session. (Bringing equipment is optional).

The 26th Annual Tree Farm and Fun Family, Kid-Friendly Field Day
Saturday, 09/17/2016 (08:00 AM - 04:00 PM)

About the Field Day
To celebrate the Boy Scouts being named Outstanding Tree Farm, we will focus on engaging youths in the outdoors through fun family, kid-friendly activities—and the traditional Tree Farm tour. Join us as the Daniel Webster Council Boy Scouts of America and their forester, Ron Klemarczyk, share their timber management, roads, trails and recreational forest management. The Griswold Scout Reservation Tree Farm encompasses 3,100 acres in the Lakes Region and includes seven mountain summits, four lakes, and numerous recreational trails. This camp introduces over 4,500 scouts to outdoor experiences every summer. The public is also welcome to explore their extensive trail system throughout the Belknap Mountain Range. A conservation easement ensures this property remains undeveloped and identifies specific zones for camping and forestry.
