Thank you Dom, I have two laser range finders, are you suggesting therefore  
that I am doubly lazy????
 
Graham - I have the Leica Disto - this provides a red target dot visible on  
the target.  Vary accurate +/- 5mm and good for 100m but you will have to  
have a magnified view finder at that range.  The laser provides a linear  
measurement but it is not corrected for slope.
 
The forest ace is extremely good however the 'red dot' is a siting target  
and does not appear on the target so you may not be getting the distance you  
want, it corrects measurements for slope, does heights, girth and a whole 
host  
of techie stuff I don't understand.
 
Both useful, most especially when you need to plot offsite trees  
conveniently left of the topo.
 
Have a very good CHRISTmas.
 
Kind regards
