Forestry and Drones

Drones and the Future of Forestry

The forestry sector faces growing challenges. Climate change, pests, and complex forest management demand meticulous monitoring. Traditional forest inventory methods can be cumbersome and not always accurate.

Drone technology offers an advancing solution. With the ability to quickly map extensive areas, drones can provide detailed insights into a forest’s health, composition, and terrain. This aerial technology can identify vulnerable areas, optimize the logistics of logging operations, and enhance the monitoring of reforestation.

In vast, roadless areas, drones enable precise and cost-effective surveillance, positioning the use of drones at the forefront of forestry development.

From Planting to Logging

Drones are a revolutionary tool with the potential to deeply transform forestry practices. Drones can be used for a variety of tasks in the forest, including:

  • Forest Inventory: Drones can be deployed to collect data on forest stock, such as the number of trees, size, and age. This information can be utilized to make decisions on land preparation, planting, thinning, logging, reforestation, and other issues.
  • Management: Drones can be employed to monitor forests and identify potential problems, such as harmful insects like the spruce bark beetle, fungal infections such as root rot and diplodia, as well as fires and diseases. This can help prevent issues from escalating and damaging the forest.
  • Planning: Drones can be used to inspect forests and serve as an invaluable tool for creating elevation models for, for example, planting maps.
