surely as trees grow up they will someday come down. The
cause of this
is often decay started by insect and disease damage. Infected
trees may look perfectly healthy but when enough wood is
affected it doesn't take a full-blown hurricane to bring
one down. An untimely gust is often sufficent.
Homeowners concerned about
the health and strength of certain trees close to their
living space can now call Conserv-A-Tree to have the
inside 'support' wood of those trees tested for dangerous
rot. Our state-of-the-art wood strength testing system,
the IML Resistograph, uses a small diameter needle
to bore into suspect trees and measure and record the
relative resistance of the inner wood. No damage is
done to the tree in the process. The results are actually
printed out on graph paper for analysis by one of our
technicians who can make the appropriate recommendations.
Call us now to take the first
step in learning which, if any, of the trees in your
living space pose a threat to you and your family.
