The Haga altimeter for measuring tree heights
A classic among international foresters
The Haga altimeter for measuring tree heights, developed in 1950 by our company’s founder Hans Haga, has been an essential tool in the international forestry and timber industry from back then to this day.
Combining precise functionality and comfortable handling with a long-life cycle, the altimeter became an unique product classic.
The indicator and scale systems are integrated into a rugged light metal casing and protected against outside influences. The pistol-shaped casing makes usage easy which is important for the accuracy of ongoing measurings.
The height determination is based on the known manner of measuring the angle between the altimeter’s position and the top of the tree. The distance to an object can be measured comfortably and quickly and can even be improved with a rangefinder tape. Furthermore, the device is designed to support an optical rangefinder.
Dimensions: app. 14,5x17x2,5 cm

Haga Altimeter 6 Scale
optical rangefinder may be attached to the Haga Altimeter. Used with its multirange target, this rangefinder enables you to determine quickly and precisely base length distances of 15, 20, 25 or 30 feet, yards or meters. Complete instructions included with the altimeter, optical rangefinder, and multirange target.
Height and slope measurements are made simple with these six scales:
Required Baseline Distance
|1 chain = 66′||66 ft.||-27′ to +144′|
|15||15 ft., yds., or m||-6 to +26 ft., yds., or m|
|20||20 ft., yds., or m||-8 to +34 ft., yds., m|
|25||25 ft., yds., or m||-10 to +43 ft., yds., or m|
|30||30 ft., yds., or m||-12 to +52 ft., yds., or m|
|Percent||Any distance in ft., yds., or m||-40 to 150% of baseline distance|
