So here we are running another transect. This time at N25.32859° and E95.36510°, about an hour's walk from our basecamp south of the village of NamSaBi in Sagaing Region. To put this in context:

the Google Earth screenshot above shows the location of the transect. The border of the Htamanthi Wildlife Sanctuary is off to the right, close to the edge of the image; our basecamp was located near the ricefields at the top left. I am pretty sure we were the first people to count and measure trees here.
