Moran State Park
Client/Owner: WA State Parks
Tree Solutions Inc worked with WA state parks to identify and assess 50 conifers in and near the public campground using a unique testing and analysis process called Statics Integrated Assessment (SIA – also known as ‘pull’ testing). In recent years, several trees had fallen over during high winds, and this testing was a way for the park to maintain mature trees while safely managing risk. SIA is the most advanced stability testing available in North America, and simulates wind forces on a tree, and determines stability thresholds, measuring wood fiber expansion under the load and documenting minute movement at the root plate.
