ARBEAUSOLutions is a company specialized in risks diagnosis and management advice for implanted vegetation on dikes, dams and banks.
The diagnosis objective is to define sectors and prioritize actions to control vegetation inducing risks, taking into account:
• properties of dikes or dams (historical background, dimensions, constitution, hydraulic functioning, particular features)
• vegetation characteristics (species, tree dimension, density, type, position on embankment, species morphological features).
Recent regulations on safety and environment make more complex vegetation management and control. Dike owners and river managers have to take difficult decisions that they have to justify.
ARBEAUSOLutions mission is to bring vegetation management integrated solutions on dikes and dams.
After 6 years of research and development work conducted in the Irstea laboratory (formerly Cemagref), ARBEAUSOLutions was created in order to carry on with diagnosis activities demanded by managers and owners of dams or dikes covered by forest.
