The Climbing Method for Taking Tree Measurements in Plantations of the Central States
Abstract:One of the great immediate needs in American forestry is additional volume and yield data. In the past such studies have usually been conducted on felled trees or in a few cases measurements of standing trees with the use of climbing irons have been taken. The author in the following article describes a new technique for studies on standing trees, which not only affords greater safety to the climber but also makes it possible to collect the required data with minimum damage to the tree.
