Removing Vegetation from Surface Model

What is the most efficient way to move trees and other tall vegetation from showing in the .dxf file? I realize you can create a DTM File, however, I am in the surface mining field and deal a lot with steep high walls that don’t show up correct on the .dxf.

My method to this point is to edit the point cloud and move tree points to the disabled layer so they won’t show up on the .dxf. Obviously, this is very time consuing on large sites and there’s always the possibility of missing something and I’m just hoping there’s a quicker easier way around this.

Thanks for the help


You are using the correct method. Unfortunately, there is no easier way to remove the trees other than editing the point cloud and moving them to the disabled group.
