State of Knowledge

Forest mensuration (also called forest measurements) has undergone a number of important changes in recent years.  Electronic measuring devices using laser or ultrasound emissions have become commonly used to measure distances.  These devices have reduced the time to measure tree heights considerably, and can be used to quickly obtain other tree parameter measures including spatial positions.  Ground Positioning Systems (GPS) that triangulate satellites to determine ground positions have become widely used.  Read more
