Sonic Decay Tree Testing

We use a sonic decay testing tool to see if a tree is healthy or not. Our system is a system that measures the speed of sound travelling across timber. Because the speed of sound waves is constant in solid wood, a measurement can be taken from one point to another on the trunk of a tree. If there is decay between the test points then the speed of the sound waves are measured as slower data. The tool calculates all data recorded in a complete test and creates an image called a tomograph. We then make an interpretation of the image. Other methods of decay detection were invasive to the tree. This system is virtually totally non-invasive.

Give us a call today to take advantage of this new state of the art tool that is completely safe for the tree!
