Notes and Observations: Accuracy of Bands and Tape for Measuring Diameter Increments
Abstract:On shortleaf pines in Arkansas, newly installed dendrometer bands understated growth until the average tree had gained 0.15 inch in diameter. With a vernier diameter tape, two-season growth was measured to ±0.03 inch on 19 out of 20 trees, and the average difference between the tape and checkbands was only 0.003 inch.
