As far as I know quadrat method is used for heterogeneous plants and are in square or circular shape. I don’t think it will help you in determining the vertical distribution of plants.

Use bisect method. This is the right method. It allows to determine profile of a vegetation or vertical distribution of plants.

Dolma, bisect method is basically a transect method whereas quadrant method is not a transect method. Read this http://www.biologydiscussion.com/plants/top-2-methods-of-sampling-plant-communities-ecology/70757.
