In this paper, the effect of the foliage on the radio wave propagation has been analyzed by using the SAGE algorithm. It has been shown that the estimates given by SAGE algorithm agree well with the geometry of the measurement site. The analysis results show that the azimuth direction spread for V polarization is always more than that for H polarization, and the opposite is true in the case of co-elevation direction spread. The average azimuth direction spread was found to be about 25° and the average co-elevation direction spread was about 6°.
