Tree Height in i-tree Eco

Ok I am a new user of i-trees.

Does TOTHT mean total height of tree?

The selection in Eco-trees only allows for 150 ft tree. For example Sequoia Sempervirens, (Coastal Redwood) can grow taller than that.

Have a good day.

Tree height in Eco

Yes, you are correct. It is total tree height and it has a limit of 150ft. The Eco (UFORE) model was designed for use in urban applications so trees like redwoods, douglas firs and others in natural forests may exceed the height limit. If you have trees that exceed the limit, you can mention the actual height of the individual trees when submitting your data. The Forest Service can make manual adjustments when running your data in the model.

Hope this helps,
