Stem analysis was developed in Germany in the 1800's and it is still the only precise and direct method to investigate the development of trees and the various aspects of their growth. This paper describes the principles underlying stem analysis, the necessary procedures, and the equipment for the acquisition and handling of tree ring growth data. Examples illustrate some applications of this method in forestry.
