Predict tree survival from root disruption with unparalleled accuracy. Our Predictive Analytics Engine will overlay your development plan and instantly compute survival scores for each disrupted tree.
Easily overlay structures on the site plan. Root zones adapt around existing structures. Proposed structures that impact root zone are reflected in tree survival score.
As existing boundaries are added from your plan, the Tree Matrix Root Plotter will adjust the root zones to reflect growth around these existing structures.
Drag-drop tree markers on site plan, and enter tree type, trunk diameter, season of impact to roots and other factors. Tree Matrix calculates predicted root zone area and visually plots the root system as an overlay for each tree added.
Easily place proposed structures on your plan, and as they impact root zones, Tree Matrix will show the endangered root system in red and adjust the survival score.
After placing new structures, you may wish to adjust the "Sides Impacted" parameter on any trees whose root zone is impacted. Tree survival rates decline if two or more of the four sides of the root zone are damaged. You can change the properties on each tree to reflect the lateral sides of the root zone which are blocked or destroyed by new structures.
Tree Matrix makes it easy for you to add any barriers such as utility lines or other disruptions to the root systems and guage their impact.
The Predictive Analytics Engine computes the adjusted Tree Survival Score as a percentage (0-100%).
Survival guages for each tree display the score, and three survival zone colors help to highlight tree survivability. Green (survival predicted), yellow (survival at risk), and red (survival unlikely).
Edit mode allows for easy adjustments to proposed structural boundaries, which can limit the root zone disruption.
Make adjustments to proposed development and structures and immediately see its adjusted score.
You can also save multiple versions of the same plan to demonstrate different impacts based on structure changes.
Your tree survivability scores are backed by our peer-reviewed algorithm and over 30 years of arboristry experience.
