Our Natkon dendrometers enable to detect drought stress of trees. Currently Switzerland and other European countries are facing a heat and drought period.
The network TreeNet detects with point dendrometers how much tree stems shrink during dry periods. This so-called tree water deficit (TWD) indicates how much trees are suffering from dry conditions. The higher the value is the more a tree is thirsty.
