TreeNet

TreeNet is a monitoring and research network of WSL, ETHZ, IAP and FOEN in which automated tree stem radius fluctuations measured with point dendrometers are analyzed in terms of forest ecosystem responses to climate change. A continuous stream of microclimate and tree physiology data provides realtime information on tree water relations and tree growth.

TreeNet aims to link research results from carbon flux sites with dendrometer data to entire landscapes. Further it provides online-tools to its partners to automatically interpret stem radius fluctuations in terms of tree water deficit, wood growth and related indicators for forest ecosystem carbon sink and drought stress.

Natkon.ch is a technical partner of TreeNet.
