Description: The use of sectional aluminum poles to measure lengths in standing trees can reduce bias and improve measurement precision. The method has been tested extensively under a variety of field conditions by Forest Survey crews in the Southeast. Over 16,000 trees with lengths up to 120 feet have been measured over the past 5 years.
