Tree experts warm to thermal imaging at Paignton Zoo
Tree experts from across the country visited Paignton Zoo Environmental Park recently to catch up on the latest developments in arboriculture – including news of a revolutionary use for heat-seeking cameras.
The two-day seminar, Physiology, Ecology and Thermal Imaging, was organized jointly by arborculturalist Andrew Cowan and Kevin Frediani of Paignton Zoo, who previously worked together on the management of ancient trees and their habitat for bats. The session devoted to thermal imaging led by Dr Marcus Bellert-Travers excited special interest, showing how the technique can now be used as a tool to provide non-invasive diagnosis and to identify functional and damaged wood.
