Our Equipment

Unfortunately valuable urban trees are often removed without need. Our specialist equipment, alongside a tree risk assessment, can give you peace of mind. This helps you to understand and manage the risks better. Then you will be able to keep and maintain your trees long into the future.

PiCUS Tree Motion Sensor 3

PiCUS Tree Motion Sensor 3 measures the tree's natural reaction to occurring winds, including all factors that influence the wind load (tree properties, exposition, wind speed).

PiCUS Tree Motion Sensor 3

A root plate tilt of 0.25° or more at wind gust speeds of 50 km/h will inevitably lead to excessively high tilt angles at higher wind speeds, and the tree can no longer be considered safe.
