Melinda's Garden Moment: Getting a look inside your trees
MADISON (WKOW) -- Seemingly healthy trees can fail. Once the tree is removed, a hollow center reveals the cause of the tree failure.
Arborists have a minimally invasive tool that helps diagnose the soundness of a tree. This information can help them diagnose tree problems and reduce the risk of unexpected tree failures that create a hazard for people and property.
An electric high-resolution needle drill makes a fine hole in the tree. As it travels through the trunk it measures the resistance encountered. A pint out is produced mapping out the internal structure of the tree.
Arborists use the results of this measuring tool to get a look inside sick and declining trees. These test results can help them determine if a tree is a hazard and should be removed or one that can be saved.
