The Quantified Tree Risk Assessment (QTRA) system applies established and accepted risk management principles to tree safety management. Firstly, the use of land upon which trees could fail is assessed and quantified, thus enabling tree managers to determine whether or not and to what degree of rigour a survey or inspection of the trees is required. Where necessary, the tree or branch is then considered in terms of both impact potential (size) and probability of failure. Values derived from the assessment of these three components are used to calculate the probability of harm.
The PiCUS® Sonic Tomograph is an instrument to detect decay and cavities in standing trees non-invasively. The velocity of sound waves in wood depends on the modulus of elasticity and the density of the wood itself. The PiCUS unit tracks the speed of these waves. Most damage and disease causes fractures, cavities, or rot and reduces the wood’s elasticity and density.
