Tree Stability Assessments: Fakopp DynaRoot Dynamic Root Evaluation System

East Devon Tree Care can provide tree stability assessments using the Fakopp DynaRoot Dynamic Root Evaluation System.

The dynamic root stability determination using the Fakopp DynaRoot Dynamic Root Evalutation system, is based on real-life wind loads enabling assessment of the real-life risks. It is simple to carry out with the only drawback being that it requires windy weather to carry out the test, in excess of 25km/h / 15mph. Once set up in place, it is completely weather proof, does not require constant monitoring and can be left alone for several hours to collect the required data.

How does DynaRoot work?

The DynaRoot Dynamic Root Evaluation system has three components:

  1. An Anemometer – an instrument for measuring wind velocity at or near to the tree to be evaluated
  2. An Inclinometer- an instrument affixed to the root collar that measures the inclination of the trunk in two different directions.
  3. Evaluation Software – PC software which evaluates wind velocity, x and y inclination and displacement.
