Resistograph Report (for the Forestry Commission) - Isle of Wight
by Daniel Green
CHTS were asked by the Forestry Commission to pop over the short stretch of water to the Isle of Wight to perform a resistograph test on a dying tree that had fruiting bodies growing high on the main stem.
Consultant Oli and Domestic Contracts Manager Barry headed over to test the tree. The Forestry Commission were keen to keep the tree if possible so that it could be carved into an artistic piece and increase the local amenity value of the area.
With the resistograph tests complete, Oli and Barry headed back to the main office to compile the results into a report for the Forestry Commission.
