The biological drought and growth indicator network

Welcome to

We turn automatically measured stem radius changes of trees (in a micrometer resolution!) into growth patterns and drought stress indicators of forests in Switzerland and elsewhere.

Watch trees in your region growing, live! Did you know that tree stems shrink during the day and expand during the night and that trees grow mainly at night?
