Hi All, A few of you will be aware that, for a few years now, I have been using Picus sonic tomography, combined with the tree statics model, to assess the fracture stability of trees. A couple of months ago I purchased an alternative to the Picus - a Rinntech’s Arbotom impulse tomography unit. A little more information is available on my website: The Arbotom | News | Think Trees I have used the equipment quite a bit and I’m really pleased with the results that have been obtained with it. However, I would really like to test some trees that are due to be removed so that I can compare the tomogram (image showing the sound transmission properties of the cross-section) with the actual cross-section of the cut stem. I am looking for trees of any species from approx. 40cm (16”) dbh upwards. If anyone is due to remove any trees in the East Herts, West Essex, High Wycombe or East Oxon areas, and would be happy for me to test them prior to their removal and then to view the cross sections after felling, please let me know. I would be very grateful. Thanks in advance. Paul
Hi all, I'm looking to set up surveying ( bs5837, tree condition etc ) an am wondering what equipment/software people would suggest to get me up an running and where's best to get it. Also, does anyone do much climbing when surveying and is their much call for decay detection equipment ( picus sonic tomograph, treetronic ), as these are things am really interested in. Any advice would be appreciated.
