PiCUS Newsletter

At irregular intervals, we publish Picus Newsletters in PDF format in German and English. In there we announce the latest developments of our PiCUS instruments for tree inspection, show new experiences with different types of trees or interesting results.

We kindly offer our test and repair service to all clients who want to have their intruments checked. Best time to do so is in the winter season. However, instruments can be shipped in for service at any time.
