Manual band Dendrometers or increment gauges are used extensively in commercial forestry and forest research. They are a very reliable and low cost method of accurately measuring and monitoring tree growth rates. In many applications trees growth rate data is sufficient on its own such as in commercial forest research mensuration. Tree growth rate data can also be very useful to combine with sapflow data to correlate water use with tree growth.
