Circumference Dendrometer 1 (DC1)


Circumference Dendrometer 1 (DC1)

The Circumference Dendrometer 1 is the simpler version for the measurement of circumference changes of plants. The sensor is mounted on a wire cable with a very low coefficient of thermal expansion on the plant. The slide rings reduce the friction between the wire cable and the tree bark. They also decrease the pressure of wire cable on the tree.

Please note the essential difference between the various circumference dendrometers.


■ Suitable for diameter 5-30 cm

■ No injury to plants

■ Easy installatio

■ Stability against wind, snow, falling small branches and small fruits

■ Readings directly correspond to the circumference changes


■ Because of the tension of the wire cable is applied in the tangential direction the pressure of the wire cable to the tree depends on tree size. The smaller the tree, the greater the pressure. Thus the measured data between trees of different diameters are usually not comparable. In such cases, we recommend the use of DC2.



■ Complete with 5 m cables and 1 m wire cable
