Tree Heights without a Tape
Abstract:With a lightweight telescoping measuring rod and a clinometer graduated in percent slope, the principle of the Christen hypsometer can be used to estimate tree heights without need for tape measurement of a horizontal base line. Under certain conditions, savings in time and labor can be substantial.
