With the innovative Laser Technology Criterion RD 1000 you can measure diameters, calculates basal area, takes tree height measurements and more.Imagine the flexibility you would have if your measurement lines were adjustable, so you no longer had to be at a set distance away from a tree. This functionality alone will make your life easier because you choose where to stand, not your equipment. Use Laser as a dendrometer and measure diameters anywhere on the stem as well as the height at which a specific diameter occurs. Displays direct read-outs of measurements on the in-scope LED. Use as a slope-corrected BAF-scope for variable plot cruising. Quickly determine the limiting distance for “borderline” trees.

Comments about Laser Technology™ Criterion® RD 1000 BAF Scope and Dendrometer:
I purchased this to help me be more efficient and accurate when cruising timber. I had been researching this produce and the Relaskop, and I finally decided to try the Criterion RD 1000 with the assumption that it would measure diameters from anywhere. Also, this product was advertised as the cheaper alternative to the Relaskop. When I received it and began reading the users manual, it became clear to me that in order for this product to be useful, I would have to buy the LaserTech rangefinder that connects to the top of the RD 1000. This is because in order for it to give you a diameter reading, you first either have to take a reading with the rangefinder or manually enter the distance. Well, if I am going to have to measure the distance manually, I might as well measure the tree diameter with my diameter tape. Additionally, to purchase the accompanying rangefinder, it looks like the price could be over $1000. For this product to be useful, you are going to easily have to invest over $2000, and depending on the rangefinder, you will approach $3000. I never even tried to use it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
