Finding Trees in a Crown Height Model

I have a Crown Height Model of trees created from lidar points. I am trying to delineate and count trees.

I tried to use watershed delineation to delinerate tree canopy, but many trees were missed and other were mixed into one watershed.

the other method I want to use but I cannot find the tools for it is finding local minimum to delineate the trees.
then find local maximum to fine the tree tops.

Can you help with how can I improve the inverse watershed delineation, and hoe to find local maxima and local minima?

Thanks a lot,
