Fakopp Pulling Test
Tree Inspection
    At present, the most accepted method for evaluating the safety and stability of trees is the pulling test. It involves applying a bending load on the trunk via a cable attached to the tree. The method can be used either to assess the uprooting stability of the tree, or to establish the risk of trunk breakage.

    There are overlaps among the equipments needed for DynaRoot and Pulling test. If you order both of them at the same time you can ask for a switchable Dual Elastometer Unit and High Precision Inclination and Deformation Recorders.
