Give your tree a physical exam today!
The use of ground penetrating radar imaging on trees; creates the same type of high-
resolution, non-invasive image that a medical professional would utilize in his diagnosis
with his patient, using MRI imagery.
This is the very latest technology to non-invasively
and safely evaluate the internal structure of a tree. Having the ability to create and see an
internal image of a tree, and then to identify any hidden internal problems; fills a critical
gap in tree preservation for the arborist during his analysis of tree health and structural
Arborist OnSite® has used this technology for the last ten years to help remove the guess work from tree preservation and risk assessment for our valued clients.
