Monitoring Plantation Performance

Managers of forest resources require detailed information about the crop for planning, management and inventory purposes. There are real benefits in the strategic use of different remotely sensed datasets such as satellite, airborne technologies over the plantation rotation. This approach is especially effective when these datasets are used to update existing stand information.

Indufor has developed automated routines that can be applied to provide the crucial information required for strategic and operational planning. Once processed, several products are derived that provide cost-effective large area monitoring, and planning tools to improve:

  • Monitoring plantation establishment
  • Forest area mapping and variation caused by: nutrition, disease, fire, and growth variation
  • Forest inventory design
  • Forest yield & wood flow models
  • Compliance
  • Forest harvesting and roading
