USE OF TERRESTRIAL LASER SCANNER FOR DETERMINATION THE VOLUME OF TREES GROWING UNDER CANOPY
Keywords: LiDAR, tree measurement, tree volume, volume tables, empirical equations
The aim of the work was to determinate, with the use of terrestrial laser scanner, volume of 7 tree species: Scots pine Pinus sylvestris, European larch Larix decidua, Douglas fir Pseudotsuga menziesii, Sessile oak Quercus petraea, Common beech Fagus silvatica, Sycamore maple Acer pseudoplatanus and Small-leaved lime Tilia cordata. The results were compared with volume determined by volume tables and empirical equations. The measurements were taken on the experimental plot in the Zielonka Forest District. The experimental forest encompasses sample plots of 40-years old stands of 7 mentioned above species under the canopy of 160-years old Scots pine forest. For 7 examined species scans on 3 plots were made with the use of Faro LS 880. On every plot, 5 trees were analyzed by measurements of their diameters in one-meter intervals and DBH and tree height. The measurement was taken by use of FARO Scene and Auto CAD software. In total 105 trees were measured. Volume obtained by laser scanner of analyzed species were smaller than the volume obtained by volume tables and by empirical equations.
