Lancashire County Council, GB assesses tree health with an arborsonic tree decay detector
Lancashire County Council, GB Arborsonic Tree Decay Detector
Council officials estimate trees at approximately one-third of county-managed highway sections. The £12,000 detector minimizes the need for time-intensive inspections through soundwave technology. Soundwaves sent through a tree identify hollow and rotten spots, resulting in a 3D map of the tree's interior. Each scan takes less than 10 minutes and enables accurate tracking of tree health over multiple scans. The county preserves healthy trees and reduces felling costs with the detector.
