I spent the summer of '75 as a timber cruiser for Simpson Timber Company in northwestern California, along with Doug Sturhan. I was fortunate that my job was located within the heart of the Redwood country. During the first week of my job it was rather difficult to get used to measuring the boles of 70-100" diameter trees. The taller specimens of these "monsters" ranged from 144 to 176 feet in height.
