Abstract

The most common form of land use in Hungarian karsts is woodland. The rate of tree growth in the forest is of utmost importance for forest management but it is also useful for monitoring purposes. In this study we review the possible uses of digital surface models (DSM) derived from aerial imagery in investigating tree growth rates. Two digital surface models were created of a 100 km2 study area in the Bükk Mountains, Hungary by using aerial imagery from the years 1965 and 2004. Tree growth maps were created by extracting the areas' digital elevation models from these surface models. Our results suggest that these digital maps could replace field measurements in the future.
