Vertical Dendrometer (DV)

Vertical Dendrometer (DV)

The Vertical dendrometer is developed to determine the vertical changes (not growth) of trees continuously.

Because the trees vary in length according to water status, wind direction and curvature, the vertical change is an interesting measure to assess the water status, mechanical stress, stability and direction of growth of the trees.

In order to cover the different causes (water status, curvature) separately, a parallel measurement is of three directions with three vertical dendrometers necessary 

Advantages

■ Suitable for large trees (diameter>8 cm)

■ Stability against wind, snow, falling branches and fruits

 

Disadvantages

■ Trunk is injured by drilling (the damage can be minimized by tree resin)

■ Suitable only for larger trees (diameter>8 cm)

 

Delivery

■ Complete with 5 m cable


Options / Ordering Information

■ Cable extension (please specify in meters)

■ Installation tools (tree resin, hand drill)

■ Data Logger
