TreeWatch.net, Tree Water and Carbon monitoring Network, aims to become a unique tool to show hydraulic functioning and growth of trees in real-time. This information offers a list of possibilities not only for scientific research and current monitoring networks, but also for education and raising awareness on climate change.
