Why does your personal protective equipment (PPE) need to be inspected?
If you read user manuals of climbing gear most of them will state the product has a certain life span.
This lifespan will vary depending on the material its made of and the conditions its used in. Read more about PPE inspection here…

Help build the Specific Wood Weight Table
Please help us build the NZ wood weight table for arboriculture. Simply cut a piece of branch or a disc from a trunk. Then measure the middle circumference and length, and weigh it with a fishing scale or a similar device. To increase accuracy, best take the measurement when the wood is freshly cut.
