Decay Detection

Does your tree have decay?
If so, the decay could increase your risk of a tree or limbs failing and possibly injuring property or people. It's often difficult to visually discern if trees have internal decay. We use a Resistograph drill, which detects the resistance of wood. A 2mm drill bit is drilled up to 16" into the trunk or limbs of the tree in question. The Resistograph prints out a paper reading of the resistance while on site! Also, the reading is stored on a bluetooth device for furter interpretation and recommendation. Each drill site comes with an on site reading as well as a more detailed reading emailed in pdf format with further recommendations. Pricing depends on number & height of testing sites.
