Spectral Reflectance: A New Technology......
What can changes in chlorophyll content and leaf cellular structure tell you about a tree? Combining satellite imagery data, site analysis, and knowledge of indicators of decay, arborists may better position themselves to make a recommendation on important management decisions.

Integrated Approach: Tree Stress Monitoring
In a follow-up to an article published in Arborist News last year, this article looks at how satellite technology allows urban foresters to observe tree stress indicators over time. (Editor's note about the follow-up article)

Tree Structural Condition & Spectral Reflectance
How do we know if photosynthesis has accumulated enough carbohydrates for the defense of decay in trees?
