Ground Penetrating Radar
Arbor Operations uses ground penetrating radar (GPR)
Our ground penetrating radar offers our clients a clear picture of what to expect and avoid before you start digging. Ground penetrating radar is a method that applies subsurface radar scanning. The radar is a fast and reliable piece of equipment that provides a two or three dimensional image of examined areas, allowing you to map the location of major roots.
Safely assess what’s beneath your feet with this non-destructive method
The use of ground penetrating radars has proven effective with clients who are considering future ground works. The radar’s non-destructive nature allows our team to get a clear picture of what to expect (and avoid) when breaking ground for landscaping or building projects.
The use of GPR on your project
GPR technology has been used for over twenty years in the industry and is one of the best ways to plan your landscaping or building project. If you unsure of the extent of major roots, or their proximity to underground assets such as water pipes, than ground penetrating radar is your best option. Arbor Operations, based in Brisbane, use this piece of technology in order to give clients the best service possible.
It is also one of the many things that separate arborists from tree loppers. We take the time to assess the health of the tree; and not just the part of the tree above the surface. Knowing the extent of major roots and if they are caught with anything (underground pipes, foundations, cables etc) can make a huge difference to how the job is carried out. Clearly, if a root is near underground assets the method of excavation and tree removal will be different.
What you can discover at a consultation
Our ground penetrating radar and other technology allows us to offer you with a comprehensive quote: not only can we tell you what needs to be done, but being able to see what’s beneath the ground we will also be able to tell you how your job will need to be done. We can also find out subsurface objects and anomalies or objects.
