DescriptionIn recent years a great deal of interest has been focused on tree growth as measured with relatively precise instruments over short periods of time. These growth measurements are usually made with vernier-band dendrometers similar to those described by Hall (1944) and Liming (1957), or dial-gage dendrometers similar to those described by Reineke (1932) and Daubenmire (1945).
