WGN-TV Gets Look at Tree Decay From Inside

Tree inspection 1

WGN-TV covered a workshop at the Morton Arboretum near Chicago Thursday which highlighted the use of new methods to test urban trees for possible deterioration. If decay can be caught early enough, it can prevent property loss or injury that sometimes results from downed trees.

Forest Products Laboratory (FPL) scientists Xiping Wang, Adam Senalik and Bob Ross were on hand, along with Allison Tree, LLC’s Bruce Allison and others presenting the importance and innovative ways we are now able to look at sick trees from the inside.
