The canopy-scope was recently introduced as a cheap, robust, portable and easy to use instrument for assessing canopy openness in forests. In this study, the method was tested in predominantly coniferous plantation forests, which were different in species and structure to the forests where the instrument was originally tested. The relationship between canopy openness (calculated from hemispherical photography) and canopy-scope score at individual points, despite being statistically significan...
