Timber Testing Services

The key to successful timber testing is to understand wood and decay patterns. Julian has considerable experience in this area. He has milled lumber from trees, built a timber framed house, and worked on all sorts of wood structures. Working with sophisticated resistance drill equipment, Julian has undertaken many projects searching for decay in timber structures. Examples include the Kinsol Trestle on Vancouver Island, B.C.; the Hollow Tree in Stanley Park, B.C.; Totem Poles, bridges, timber framed buildings, log cabins, power poles, wood stave pipe lines, and all manner of wooden structures.

Dunster & Associates is the North American representative for Rinntech, the  company that invented the Resistograph® micro resistance drill, and the Arbotom sonic tomography machine.  Julian undertakes timber testing, and training throughout North America.
