ARBORADIX

Arboradix™ root diagnostic tool to be used in combination with Arbotom® stress wave tomograph.

Applied in Germany since 2004 as part of expert reports in order to find roots in urban areas, to check extensions after ground works and to prevent root damage before designing building pits and trenches.

  • Roots with diameter of down to 2cm in a depth of down to 50cm detectable.
  • Overall-stress wave speed from pin to sensor ranges from approx. 100 to 500m/s

Measurement principle

  • Position Arboradix where roots are expected, then knock on it.
  • Arbotom sensors on stem base of tree react when mechanical impulse arrives
  • Line-graphs indicate major root area and extension/ distance of major roots from stem base.

Arboradix Software

  • Overall-stress wave speed from pin to sensor ranges from approx. 100 to 500m/s
  • Fast and easy positioning of root sensor through quick buttons for changing root measurement distances.
