I am new to working with raster data and I am trying to teach myself a few things. I have what I think is a simple problem but I can't seem to figure this one out after a few hours of searching Arc Help etc.

I have raster with ground elevations to which I want to add tree heights. I have a Forest Cover polygon vector layer which has tree heights for my study area. I would like to add the heights of trees to the elevation data.

My first guess was to convert the Forest Cover polygon to a raster based on the tree height field and then Merge/Combine the two rasters?

Many thanks in advanced for your help,
