Sonic Tomography

What is sonic tomography?

Sonic tomography is a technology that uses sound waves to detect decay and cavities inside standing trees. Canopy Consulting uses sonic tomography devices to create two-or three-dimensional images of a tree's internal structure. The images can help us identify and quantify areas of a tree that are damaged or decayed and are at risk of failure. Sonic tomography should not be relied upon as the only factor when making decisions about tree removal or pruning. However, when used in combination with other information, sonic tomography can be a very valuable tool for arborists.

What is Included in a Sonic Tomograph Report?

When we conduct a sonic tomography scan on a tree, we compile a report that includes the results of the scan. This report can help identify any potential risks that the tree may pose to people or property and will include a risk assessment of the test location. The report will also include information on the health of the tree, including damage that may not be visible to the naked eye.

It is also important to keep in mind that the report is only as good as the data collected by the arborist during the scan. Canopy Consulting arborists are experienced in the use of and trained by Argus, the manufacturer of the PiCUS sonic tomograph, so you can rest assured you will be getting the best possible information.
