• The position, size, and architecture of tree stems • The position, size, and shape of tree crowns • The density of foliage within the crown These attributes influence both the economic value of forests and the processes driving ecosystem development. We conducted scanning campaigns at the Bartlett Experimental Forest, in order to evaluate the potential of TLS, to develop new algorithms for extracting useful information from scanner data, and to test those methods where possible against data collected using conventional methods. Although we do not believe TLS is ready for operational forest inventory, we have identified new approaches that will make it extremely useful for ecosystem research.
