N2 - Approximating the complete biomass of a forest will be essential for the biofuel and carbon storage industries in the future. Current methods are optimized for measuring the trunk volume of the trees which is sufficient for the traditional wood industry but as much as half of the biomass is contained in the branches. This paper presents a device that provides accurate measurements the tree volume and density including branches. The device can be used for improving the existing mathematical models to get a more accurate estimate of the total biomass in the forests. Measurement accuracy of the presented device was evaluated by measuring a reference object of known volume, which proved that the device produces accurate data.
