This paper assesses the accuracy and reliability of tree height retrieval over coniferous plantations using X-band interferometry. Factors such as crown shape, density, tree height, incidence angle, and slope have been assessed and quantified using a simple polarimetric radar interferometry simulator to determine their impact on height retrieval. Results from model simulation show that the most important factors are: crown shape, plantation density, and tree height. Variation in viewing angle and small slopes (<30°) appear to have only small effects. These results appear to be in reasonably good agreement with the retrieved tree height from airborne X-band Intermap data over coniferous plantations in the U.K.
