I used a Laserace in Costa Rica a couple of years ago. Expensive but very accurate.

If you have the money go for it.

But you need the volume of work to justify it as well.

I don't want to have one lying around not earning money - so although I rate it very highly I haven't purchased one. Yet.



There is mention of it on my website wrote:
I use a Cobra 1000HS for height and range £300 to £350 , for dbh the only one I know that is accurate enough is a Criterion RD1000 relascope from PosRes and fujikura at C£1200, mainly a timber tool for standing hardwoods where top and bottom girths are needed for accurate cubage. seemed a tad expensive compared to £10 for a tape Sean Why would you need sub 30cm accuracy seems very OTT to me, we are not surveyors at the end of the day and you can't stand in the middle of a stem to plot it that accurate plus canopy problems, etc. There are quite a few stand alone devices for camera gps now from about £30 Andy
