Welcome to the latest issue of Foresttech.News.
We are finally there. ForestTECH 2022, which was last held in Australia three years ago, will be returning as an in-person event this month. We have more than 150 attending at both the Melbourne and Rotorua events (as well as remote virtual delegates from at this stage, 12 different countries). Well over 300 of the industry’s brightest will be soaking up the atmosphere, networking and exchanging ideas in mid-November.
ForestTECH 2022 attracts GIS, mapping and forest inventory specialists, as well as tree crop, forest establishment and silvicultural managers. The two-day event includes the annual conference, exhibitions and workshops. Details can be found on the event website and last-minute places, including virtual registrations to the NZ event if at this late stage you can’t get there in person, are still available..
One story this month really got our attention. New trials in the UK show tree seedlings can grow 6 times faster than traditional methods. Several tree species were tested and all yielded strong results. The advantage of vertical farming is the ability to automate, record and control all aspects of plant growth, including temperature, light exposure, water, wind, humidity and more.
In New Zealand news, we have a new report commissioned by the Northland Regional Council reviewing remotely sensed technologies under the NZ Resource Management Act. We also have the launch of Critchlow Geospatial’s NZ first satellite imagery marketplace. The marketplace makes available a wide range of satellite providers to make it easier for businesses to find the right fit.
Check out these stories, videos and much more below. Enjoy this month’s issue.
