Great Measuring Range

Depending on the surroundings The Haglof Vertex IV Rangefinder can be used in different ways. In areas with thick vegetation this surveying tool performs very good using the ultrasound technique. In order to use the ultrasound we would need the optional T3 Transponder, in fact the transponder can be used with the Vertex IV to measure heights placing it directly to a tree or a pole. The Vertex IV can even use a monopod staff to measure full circles for sample plots. To attach the monopod to the transponder an adapter is needed. This is an excellent feature for engineers and land surveyors.
Basal Area Factor - BAF

This option allows you to point sample an area, that is basically a method used to sample the trees based on their size rather than the amount of them.
