Tree stability assessment
Tree stability assessment is essential to ensure the safety of public areas, private gardens, historic gardens.
Tree stability assessment is divided into 4 steps:
  • visual assessment: identification of warning signs present on trees
  • instrumental analysis: investigations performed using specific instruments that are able to determine whether the internal tissues of the tree are altered or destroyed, and if the roots are able to counteract the force of the wind or snow load
  • risk assessment
  • estimate of the hazard and recommended actions

Censuses of public green spaces
The census of green spaces, specifically the trees but also the shrubs and herbaceous, is the first step to carry out a program for managing the assets of a green space, a garden, a park, tree-lined avenues, or the entire territory of a municipality . It includes botanical identification of individual trees, the description of the morphometric characteristics (height, width, circumference), the presence of interference, health status, the presence of structural defects and diseases. For every tree is drawn up a sort of "identity card" together with a "medical records". The dataset provides information on the number of plants present, their type, their health status and allows you to define a schedule of maintenance operations, whether ordinary or extraordinary.
