Tree Care & Tree Inspection

Tree Care & Tree Inspection

In the context of tree care and tree inspection our instruments help expose inner defects at an early stage. The inspection drill captures resistance data that illustrates decay or cavity found inside the wood. Arborists utilize the inspection drill to help prevent unnecessary tree removal by taking the extra step to provide interpretive data of the internal state of the wood. The inspection drill technology increases accuracy with detailed information that is especially valuable when inspecting trees in high profile locations such as playgrounds, universities, parks, or golf courses.

Line clearance, street, and tree park, pruning and removal are municipal priorities to keep the lines clear and to eliminate dangerous trees from public locations. Deadwood can pose to be a safety concern and while ensuring trees are removed or clipped, we suggest including a tree inspection to support your decision of tree removal or preservation. This inspection also increases safety by checking the density of the wood before inspectors begin to climb.

The VTA method (Visual Tree Assessment) is a procedure that arborists use to analyze the external flaws of a tree that could be the cause of severe decay, infestation, or central to a localized region. During the external assessment, the arborist takes notes of areas that require further investigation. The inspection drill is used on these areas of concern to analyze the severity of the external deficiencies. By collecting this information early, you can reduce the chances of a falling tree that could result in a safety incident or personal and public property damage.

The measurement methods of our test instruments are scientifically proven. Scientists and specialists recommend them as objective and reliable examination methods.
