Tree Radar for Subsurface Scanning
The patented TRU system is a breakthrough technology for tree diagnosis. The application of ground penetrating radar (GPR) to trees is an innovative use of this established technology. GPR is used to detect a variety of problems and defects in subsurface objects, including solid wood, roots, and the bark. This is a critical step in the preservation of trees. In order to provide the most accurate results, the TreeRadar system is specially designed for subsurface scans.
A TRU system automatically calibrates itself for varying soil conditions. In loamy mixed soil, the signal can penetrate as much as 39 in (1 m) into the ground. As the amount of sand and clay increases, the signal penetration decreases. High wet clay is the toughest to penetrate, but the lower layers of clay do not affect the tree’s health. The TRU system employs special signal processing algorithms that can detect changes in a tree’s internal structure and its root mass.
In the research, TRU uses radar waveforms to detect internal tree trunk conditions. This information can be used to identify various changes in the wood’s composition and moisture content. The technology can also identify punky, hollow, and dead wood. Other types of reflections in the images can be detected by the TRU system. The TRU can also be used for off-site analysis, which is particularly helpful to scientists studying tree biology. Once the system is ready to be applied, it will allow researchers to make informed decisions about the health of trees.
Using a tree radar system is an important step in preventing damage caused by decaying trees. A GPR system can detect the presence of fungus and roots. The technology is more accurate than ever for tree inspection and root scanning. It is also very convenient for landscape professionals. It is even more effective for forest owners and landscapers who can easily access the root systems of trees and other trees. If you have a problem with a tree, you can rely on a trusted company to conduct the necessary testing.
The TRU system consists of four devices: a tablet, a Radar Control Unit, and a scanning cart. The Tablet is used to scan the trunk, while the other two devices are used to scan the roots and the subsurface. The system can also detect badger sets and hollows. The TRU provides a 3D cross-sectional image. The TRU also enables the arborist to see the location of dead branches and roots, which are essential to prevent decay.
Tree Radar units are used for research purposes. The TRU system works by measuring the electromagnetic wave of a tree’s trunk. The device can detect wood that has decayed and is resistant to rot. In addition to identifying decayed wood, the TRU can also detect hollows and punky wood. Its off-line software analyzes the data. The TRU can be used for other research purposes as well.
