MANAGEMENT TEAM consists of three founders Marc Derksen MSc, Bastiaan Roest and Gerard van Onna MSc. Dennis Kemp is responsible for project management and implementation on a daily basis. BUSINESS ADVISORY: Joop Jooritsma (general manager LTO Businesses; Dutch Federation of Agriculture and Horticulture). SCIENTIFIC ADVISORY: Professor Dr. Minelli (Bologna University, dept. Horticulture and Floriculture) and Dr. Vanthoor-Koopmans (owner Greenko Consultancy, Master of Science Biotechnology at Wageningen University). STRATEGIC PARTNERS are BTL and Peercode. As our partner in the field BTL has been a tree specialist for over 40 years with broad experience in realization and guidance. Peercode is our strategic partner in the area of software engineering and user experience design.
HARDWARE. Our patented method finds its way to high-tech tools for tree surgeons and specialized gardeners. The heart forms a thermal solution, where medium and far infrared is used to defuse pathogenic fungi, bacteria and insects in plants and trees. The infrared is invisible to the naked eye and penetrates into the tree or plant.
SOFTWARE. Forms the brain of our solution. Complex algorithms are used to adjust the efficient treatment to the various environmental variables and tree / plant specific properties. By continuously collecting and analyzing data, we refine the control system. To accurately inform about the status of the treatment, we set up a specially developed Treehold app. This app can also be used for more commercial purposes.
(MICRO) BIOLOGY. Organisms that cause infectious disease include fungi, bacteria, and ectoparasites like insects or other pests that affect plant health. The behaviour of these organisms and insects on our method is followed and interpreted by our strategic partners, a European university and a number of independent laboratories, aimed at an effective, safe, treatment.
Treehold offers tree surgeons and specialized gardeners a high-tech solution for the control of harmful bacteria, fungi and insects from trees and plants. The thermal treatment method is based on far and medium infrared technology. The short treatment time makes the treatment method very efficient and putting it into operation is safe and very simple.
