In the forest, when building roads and other constructions, when planning new ski slopes and golf courses... Applications are many, and clinometers to measure angles and inclinations come in different forms and shapes.

In the forest, basic trigonometry can be used to measure tree heights - a distance to the measuring object (the tree), followed by the angles at the bottom and top, the merchantable height, or other height of the tree. For best and most accurate results, it is recommended to stand at a distance that is no less than the height of the tree to measure. Slopes are in most cases expressed as a percent. If the ground slopes downwards, the measure recorded will be a negative slope to the base of the tree. For leaning trees, measurements should never be taken with the tree leaning toward or away from you.

A clinometer is commonly used by foresters to obtain the slope of terrain. Haglöf Sweden offers a variety of measuring instruments that accurately and instantly will present the slopes and angle to you. The reading-off-scales in mechanical measuring instrument can be challenging, and open up for errors and mis-interpretations - which is why our instruments will give you electronic results.

Use our small and convenient electronic clinometers EC II or C I for instant results. Work with the Vertex IV when underbrush is thick, and the VL5 Vertex Laser  or L5 Laser when in open areas and for long distances. See, try and experience the difference with electronic measurement results!
