DNR Forest Service to Administer “MRI” on Tree in Oella
Staff from DNR’s Forest Service will be assessing the health and structural integrity of a large, old pecan tree in Banneker Historical Park in Oella, Friday, Oct. 28, at 9 a.m. A Tree Radar Unit (TRU) (http://www.treeradar.com/) will be used for the assessment. This radar imaging system creates a high-resolution, non-invasive image similar to that of an MRI of the internal structure of a tree or its root mass.
