Essential identification for retaining trees on development sites and the implementation of their safe management, advice on protective measures during construction and incorporating them into the finished landscape.
Sonic decay detection equipment
  • Tree survey and management using latest
    sonic decay detection. We use the PiCUS Tomograph (as shown in the photograph).
    This produces a tomogram print out, illustrating in colour areas of decaying or sound wood.
    The tomogram is effectively a density map of
    the internal structure of the tree taken at a cross section of a certain level. The PiCUS detects differences in the ability of wood to transmit sonic waves which correlate with its density, illustrated on the tomogram by coloured areas.
