Young Ash

Here is an ash we measured Saturday. The trees we look at are recorded and we hope to find them in the future to see the change in growth.

Height 46'
Circumference 25 1/8" or 8" diameter.
Canopy 22' x 23'

Giving it a point total of 77. Not a big tree, but it is the young trees that show growth.

The woods we were hiking in had no man made objects to referance them to. We were using a compass and keeping track of the number of paces to reference the trees. Going from large tree and noticing how the ground sloped helped me identify where I was.
