Software allows park staff to ‘talk to trees’ about water stress

Sensor technology that will allow city park managers and local residents to monitor water stress in trees is being tested by Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne.

The university is working with global environment technology group ICT International and the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology University to install tree water sensors at the CERES Community Environment Park in Brunswick East.

The study is led by Swinburne engineer Scott Rayburg and will allow park staff and city residents to use digital platforms to track the health of trees and their level of water stress.
