Stand density. Species composition. Canopy height. Forest health.

You rely on this information to turn a stand into board feet. Accurately determining this data the traditional way, however, is costly, requiring timber cruises and expensive overflights with manned aircraft. And, even with good monitoring some things, like an emerging insect outbreak, can evade detection until it’s too late.

An unmanned aircraft allows you to overfly your stands regularly to monitor growth and get early warning of problems. Get accurate measurements of tree height and aboveground biomass. Evaluate new stands and find the high-value timber. Simply put, make your time and money go further. Click here to see some examples of what we can do.

Those capabilities are worth a lot but it comes at the price of just a few hypsometers. Want to find out more? Contact us now.
