Welcome to the latest issue of Foresttech.News.
As detailed, plans for the ForestTECH 2020 event running in Rotorua, New Zealand on 18-19 November 2020 are well on track. As anticipated, conferences can now be held in New Zealand. With this in mind, the physical conference and exhibitions will run as scheduled.
This year, because of country border restrictions, for the first time, the full two-day event is also being streamed into Australia – and a large number of other countries that have expressed an interest in the current environment as well. Also, for the first time, the technical content is being split between tree crop management, automated silviculture and mechanised planting technologies on day one and remote sensing and inventory management on the second day.
For those travelling into Rotorua this year, three additional workshops (free to ForestTECH 2020 delegates) are also being held (with numbers having to be limited at two of the three workshops). Further details can be found in the story below or checking out the event website. Registrations, conference and on-line, are rolling in and for those looking to meet up this year in Rotorua, discounted early-bird registrations finish on Friday 9 October 2020.
In this month’s ForestTECH News issue, we cover a range of stories around developments on the use of drones (operationally, technically and regulatory) along with some R&D efforts in and around automation of operations within the forest.
