Wood Decay Testing

Treecare Consulting provides a wood testing service for timber items other than standing trees.


    • Play equipment supports.
    • Bridge supports.
    • High Rope course supports.
    • Gate/Fence and wooden barrier posts.
    • Telegraph poles.
    • Timber beams.

We use a PD500 Micro Drill to obtain a true physical reading from the target timber. The information gained is a true measure of what is goin gon inside a section of timber. The PD500 can clearly show:

    • Decay.
    • Cracks.
    • Rot pockets.
    • Cavities in wood.
    • Loss of structural strength.
