Weekly Report 5 – 8-12 Aug

Here is my fifth and final summary of aerial observations made in conjunction with the 2011 aerial forest health survey of Colorado.

I flew two days over areas west of Fort Collins including the Upper Poudre and South Poudre River Basins, the lower Poudre Canyon, Rist Canyon, Redstone Canyon and the Buckhorn Creek Basin.  Frank Sapio, USDA Forest Service, Forest Health Technology Enterprise Team accompanied me one day and Dan Kipervaser, Assistant Silviculturist, Canyon Lakes District, Arapahoe Roosevelt NF accompanied me as an aerial observer on the second day.
